What We Ate: Lemon Icebox Cake

see url I’ve always been curious about icebox pie (and cake – there’s icebox cake, too, right?) and when I came across this recipe in June’s Redbook, I tried it within days. It’s intensely lemony, refreshingly chilly, and pretty easy to make. I consider it the grown-up version of a sugary popsicle. It still contains a breathtaking amount of sugar (steer clear of the nutritional information on that sweetened condensed milk), but that’s to be expected when the recipe also calls for a cup of lemon juice, right?

I used a storebought graham cracker crust. The original recipe called for making your own, but I didn’t see the need. Mine usually fall apart, anyway:) It probably would taste a little better, but I granted myself a shortcut.
