Cream cheese lemonade pie

Cream cheese lemonade pie
A pie is a baked dish prepared with a casing of a pastry and filled with sweet or savoury ingredients. Summer is the best season to enjoy citrusy refreshing sweet pies.

Here I have an easy recipe of a pie you can enjoy with your family on a sunny day. The crust is made with graham crackers so you can avoid the headache of preparing a pastry. The filling is a lovely combination of cream cheese, lemon pudding and lemonade concentrate. You may also add a pinch of grated lemon zest to give that extra zing to the dessert. It is perfect to end barbecue parties, picnics or house parties. You can even enjoy this dessert during afternoon tea. It is luscious, creamy and delicious. This dessert is light yet it has that buttery crust to balance the texture and flavours well with the cream cheese filling. In case you do not want to make them in a pie crust, you can also serve a deconstructed version of this dessert in glass bowls.

All you need to do is to serve the baked graham cracker crumbs at the bottom and top with the cream filling. Serve with some whipped topping and fresh mint sprigs. So versatile !
