At our house we’ll take any reason to celebrate PIE, Pi Day (3-14) seems like a perfectly logical ‘holiday’ to me.
Plus, pie is my husband’s favorite dessert.
And now have a new favorite pie, lemon-raspberry ice box pie with Oreo cookie crust – it’s pictured below…and really, there are no words.
This pie is an absolute sensation – an Oreo cookie crust topped with a creamy, lightly lemon-y filling, covered in fresh raspberries and crowned with freshly whipped cream. Pretty much heaven on a plate.
Aaaaand it’s so stinkin’ easy to make! The Oreo crust is homemade, but you could easily use a store-bought Oreo crust or even a graham cracker crust, if you must. Then all you do is beat together the filling and chill (that’s why they call it Ice Box ’cause the fridge is doing all of the work!). If I was going to serve it to a crowd of people, I would go all the way and pile that baby with whipped cream. But since it was going to be eaten over the course of a couple of days (although my husband was begging for more after his first piece and I wouldn’t allow it until the next day after I took the pictures!), I topped each piece with a squirt of canned whipped cream because I’m real fancy like that.
No matter how you decide to top it, make sure you have someone to share it with. Otherwise you are likely to eat the whole thing all.by.yourself!
