It's Dazzling...It's Delicious...

It's a...

It's Lemon Angel Pie.
And even I can make it. And have made it...many many times. And I highly recommend that you do the same.

Here's all you need:

A graham cracker crust, a can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk, 6 oz. frozen lemonade (partially thawed), and an 8 oz. container of Cool Whip.

OK, are you ready? First step:

Dump the lemonade into a mixing bowl.

Next add the sweetened condensed milk.

Fold in the Cool Whip...

Doesn't look all that lemony, does it...
Well, since we've already gone to this much trouble, let's pull out the secret ingredient...

Oh, look! A bird! With a flowered wing!

Sorry. Where was I...
Oh yes. Yellow food coloring! That's the ticket!

Much better. Now just pour the filling into the pie shell. And go ahead and lick the spoon!

OK, now you'll need to put the pie in the fridge for several hours.

Taa Daa! Here we go! (Note: I did not wait as long as I should have. Had to make sure I got a nice slice before anyone in the house discovered it...) And unlike my previously mentioned chocolate sauce, this pie does thicken up beautifully.

Now what's all this?

I'm pleased to give you a couple of sneak peeks at Late Bloomer Quilts very first block of the month pattern. It's called "Flight of Fancy" and is made entirely of gorgeous LakeHouse fabrics.
It's getting ready to go to Quilter Extraordinaire Diana and when it comes back I'll show you a bit more.
It will be available as a pattern this fall!

Although I'm a little bit scared of the ingredients in cool whip I secretly love it. Don't tell my family though because they think it's not edible.

That pie sounds super good.

I'm almost drooling. The only thing that really prevented drooling was the view of those cherries with rick rack stems!

Your post is so cute! Not to mention that quilt and the pie. That is a pretty fancy crow and she deserves some lemon pie too. I loved seeing what you are working on. Very, very creative use of fabric my girl. Maybe we should have a post market party and bring desserts! (:

My family has been making this pie for years. It's great! Try it frozen sometime. I occasionally make it with lime-aide and a chocolate cookie crust -yummy and pretty, too!

Oh the pie sounds yummy - I will have to try this since lemon pie is my favorite- and those sneak peeks at the quilt are whetting my appetite too!! I can't wait to see this quilt - I love the new Lakehouse Fabric and I see several of my favorite elements in this design - cherries, rickrack and birds - sounds like a perfect recipe !!!

I used to make this lemonaide pie years ago, and had forgotten the ingredients. THANK YOU!

I have just stumbled onto your blog and I am definitely bookmarking it! Lovely and interesting. Question: I'm trying to understand about your post "You can get 4 small labels on one sheet of Printed Treasures, or one large label" --Printed Treasures, umm what are they? I have not come across this goods???
I do label, but my labels are rather, uhhh primitive. They need an upgrade. Thank you for your help. As Arnie would say, "I'll be back." ;-)

Oh my goodness. That pie looks incredible. I'm makin' it! I giggled when you threw in the flowered winged bird. It reminded me of a t-shirt I saw (and my honey thinks I need). It says "I don't have ADD....Oh, look, a chicken!"

Oh gosh Elizabeth! I'm so torn; which do I want most, the pie or the quilt pattern? YAY! I can have both! :-) Thanks so much for the recipe (i LOVE easy!) and I'll def keep an eye out for that pattern. Fabulous!

Pie or Quilt pattern indeed! A delicious conundrum no matter how you (er) slice it.

I'll be making both! :)
