Lemon Ice Box Pie

 I found this recipe while browsing around some of my favorite food blogs.  This was posted on Brenda's Canadian Kitchen and it looked so good and sounded so simple that I just had to try it.  I absolutely love any kind of lemon dessert but this now may be one of my new favorites.  It's light and lemony and has just enough tartness to cut the sweetness.  It's the perfect summer dessert.  I used fat free cream cheese instead of regular and you could not tell at all.  I also left out the vanilla because I had just run out but I didn't miss it at all either.


1 -8 oz  fat free cream cheese at room temperature
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon of lemon zest
1 graham cracker crust


Using a hand mixer beat together the softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and lemon zest until smooth and creamy.  Pour mixture into a prepared graham cracker crust and refrigerate overnight.  Serve with whipped cream.
