Springtime is here, and Summer is right around the corner. Everyone is ready for light, cool and refreshing recipes. This one comes from my Mom. She found this recipe a few years ago, and we changed it up a bit to fit our taste buds. The original recipe was a bit tart for me, and Mom and I didn't think it had enough strawberries, so I am giving you the original recipe, and putting our adjustments at the bottom. You choose, everyone's taste buds are different! Hope you enjoy!
Strawberry Icebox Pie:
1 12oz container Cool Whip (if you can't find this size, just use 1 8oz, and half of another!)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 16oz container of frozen sweetened, sliced strawberries, well drained
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 cup chopped pecans, optional
2 6oz graham cracker pie crusts
Combine milk, and lemon juice. Fold in Cool Whip, strawberries and pecans. Pour into crusts and chill until ready to serve.
**For a less tart pie, use 1/3 cup lemon juice.
**I use 2 16oz containers of strawberries to give more strawberry flavor!
