Creamy Lemon Icebox Pie Recipe Is a Classic Southern Dessert

An icebox pie is a southern dessert recipe that was named after the ice box used to keep it cold back in the day. Many icebox pie recipes require no cooking. But some, like this creamy lemon icebox pie recipe, does need some lovin' from the oven.

Serve this easy lemon pie recipe with whipped cream. Fancy it up with some fresh lemon slices, too.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes plus time to cool and chill 
Cook Time: 25 to 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 to 40 minutes plus time to cool and chill 
Servings: Makes 1 pie




Here's how to make it: 

  1. To make the crust, combine all the crust ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Pour into a 9-inch deep dish pie plate. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate. Set aside. 
  2. To make the filling, stir together the lemon juice and sweetened condensed milk in a bowl. 
  3. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and lemon zests together with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 6 minutes. Add the sweetened condensed milk mixture to the eggs, stirring until combined. Pour the filling into the graham cracker crust. 
  4. Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the edges are set but the center still slightly jiggles. Cool for about 1 hour on the counter before putting the pie into the refrigerator (icebox) to chill.
