The other night we went to one of Mike’s friend’s houses for a get together. His friend was the recipient of a firkin for Father’s Day and he needed a thirsty crowd to drink it all when he tapped it. Mike requested that I make Martha Stewart’s Strawberry-Lemonade Icebox Pie to bring along.
Martha has you making a graham cracker crust from scratch and topping the pie with meringue. I buy a pre-made pie crust. And I’ve eliminated the meringue. It travels better without it and I can bring the strawberries on the side. Plus, this makes the hardest part of the recipe juicing the lemons which isn’t hard at all. And people still love it.
Here is the pie cooled out of the oven.
And a crappy iPhone photo of Mike’s slice next to a strawberry pie from Wegman’s.
I have to admit that I don’t love this pie but I’m not always the biggest pie or lemon fan. It’s very lemony and people who like it say it’s refreshing and not too sweet. It’s easy to transport to a cookout and perfectly summery.
