Made By Mistake - Lemonade Pie

A few weeks ago I read a post on another blog (I'm sorry. For the life of me I can't remember what blog. I read a lot of cooking blogs) and they posted this super simple recipe for Pink Lemonade Pie. I thought that would be a yummy dessert to make while we were on vacation for the 4th of July. I knew it was simple. Just 4 ingredients:

A can of frozen pink lemonade
A tub of Cool Whip
A can of condensed sweetened milk
A premade pie crust.

Easy as pie.........::groan:::

So, I didn't even take the recipe with me. I made the pie with the above ingredients and was surprised to find I had a bowl leftover of the filling. but, no biggie. I put it into the freezer and it didn't quite freeze up. I was a little leery about serving it but, what the heck. First my dad tried it. I waited to see a reaction. Okay, the plate is cleaned and still no response. However, he headed back into the kitchen and quickly scooped up another piece. Next up my hubby. After he ate his piece of pie he quickly "called" the extra bowl of filling! LOL

This pie was so yummy! It reminded me of a lemon sherbet but creamy.

I just mixed the can of frozen pink lemonade and the can of sweetened milk. Once that was mixed, I carefully stirred in the Cool Whip and then poured into the pie crust. Pop in freezer. That's it.

I have already had requests for this pie at future get togethers.

Now, here is the funny part. When I got home, I looked at the recipe. Apparently I was only suppose to use HALF the can of pink lemonade. Ooops. That would have made it all fit in the pie crust, froze up a bit and a lot sweeter.

Now I am going to try it the original way. However, this mistake turned into a family favorite already!

  4. Hello sweet friend...

    Mmmm...your lemonade pie sounds delicious! Wow...and it would be sooo easy to that! Was wondering what size of lemonade and cool whip that the recipe calls for? I'd love to give this one a try! It would be good at any time but was thinking how delicious this would be on a hot summer's day! Yummmy!!!

    Too cute...about your mixup of the recipe! It must have still been really good since your guys ate it all up! Hehe! Well my dear, thank you so much for joining in with Sunday Favorites again this week and for sharing this yummy recipe with us!

    Have a wonderful Valentine's Day, Darlin'!

  5. Yes that does sound refreshing. If you can post the sizes of the lemonade and the cool whip I would appreciate it too.

  6. Sounds like a 'happy accident' to me. Don't ya love when that happens? Sounds good enough to try.

  7. I LIKE the sound of the "mistake." I think all that concentrate would give the pie more of a tangy "zip" which is what I LOVE about lemon and lime desserts!!!

    I think your "mistake" was serendipitous!!!

  8. That sounds like the perfect summertime treat! I'm going to try to make this, if summer ever finds it's way back to the mid-atlantic states after the crazy winter we've had!
