Instructions
 

Crust Instructions

  • Turn on your oven and set it to 350 degrees.
  • Place the graham crackers in a gallon-sized zip-top bag; press all the air out of the bag and close it up.
  • Using a rolling pin, meat mallet, or some other heavy tool, crush and smash the crackers until they are crumbly. (Kids love this part of the recipe.)
  • Place the crumbs in a nine-inch pie pan and add the sugar.
  • Use a fork to combine the sugar and graham cracker crumbs, and slowly drizzle in the butter, tossing with a fork to combine.
    The ingredients combined in one bowl.
  • Using your hands, a smooth bottomed drinking glass or a small, smooth bottomed glass bowl, press the crumbs in the bottom and up the sides of your pie pan.
  • Bake the pie crust for 8-10 minutes or until it is lightly browned.
  • Allow it to cool to room temperature before you start working on the filling.

Filling Instructions

  • In a large bowl, stir together the lemonade mix and the sweetened condensed milk until they are thoroughly combined.
  • You can use an electric mixer or a whisk. Using a spatula, gently fold in the whipped topping until the ingredients are completely mixed.
  • Scrape the filling out into the prepared pie crust and smooth the top.
  • Cover the pie with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in the freezer for six to eight hours.

  • This pie makes between eight to ten servings depending on how thickly you cut the slices.
  • If you want to add an additional garnish, fresh mint leaves, lemon slices, sliced strawberries, or curls of lemon peel can add a decorative touch.
  • Store the leftover pie covered in the freezer for up to two weeks.

Notes

When you have children, you must choose the recipe that you prepare carefully. If the recipe is too difficult, the child may end up frustrated and disliking cooking, or an adult might have to do most of the work, which takes away the sense of accomplishment that children crave.
This recipe for Frozen Lemonade Pie is one that most school-aged kids can accomplish with ease. Younger kids may need help with the can opener or the oven, but most of the actual “cooking” involves tasks that kids can easily handle.
While this recipe offers ingredients and instructions for making a graham cracker pie crust from scratch, you could purchase a ready-made graham cracker crust to simplify preparation if you wanted. If that is what you choose, just follow the packaged crust instructions for baking it, and then proceed with creating the filling and following the remaining steps of the recipe.
The preparation of this recipe will take you less than half an hour, but you will need at least six to eight hours for the pie to sit in the freezer. Be sure that you allow enough time for it to completely freeze or the filling will not stay firm as you cut and serve this pie.
