Lemon Icebox Pie
Submitted by Stacey Girl
I made this pie back in the early 1970's when the metal icecube trays
were still being used. The insert could be removed and you would
crush your own graham crackers and mix with softened butter to
make your graham cracker crust that you would press into the
metal ice cube tray before the filling was added.
Now here is a modern recipe that I think many will enjoy.

Prep time 20 minutes
Makes 1-9 inch pie
1(14ounce) Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (not evaporated milk)
1/2 C lemon juice
Yellow food coloring optional
1 C (1/2 pint) whipping cream but you can use Cool Whip, thawed
1 (9 inch) baked pie shell or graham cracker crumb crust
In medium bowl stir together Eagle Brand, lemon juice, and food coloring if desired
Fold in whipped cream
Pour into prepared crust. Chill for 3 hours in freezer or until set.
  Refrigerate until you serve.

8 qt. Cucumbers, unpeeled, sliced
