Pink Lemonade Pie—by Riley Adams

But first, I wanted to remind y’all to enter our friend, Wendy Watson’s giveaway. Wendy’s book, A Parfait Murder is her exciting third book in her delicious Mystery a la Mode series.

Here’s the contest, in Wendy’s own words:

RileyAdamsFoodBlogPostpic_thumb_thumb[3]Some of y’all aren’t experiencing sunny weather where you are…and you’re wondering why on Earth I’m putting up a summertime dessert like Pink Lemonade Pie.

Can you believe it, but it’s 91 degrees here in North Carolina right now? My children have been swimming in outdoor swimming pools without turning blue and it isn’t even Memorial Day yet!

As soon as the weather started turning, I went ahead and grabbed my recipe box. I knew my kids were going to be asking about lemonade pie. I have an old recipe from the summer before I married. That summer I asked for recipes from just about everybody I knew. And if I ate at someone’s house, I asked for the recipe for everything on the menu. I was a recipe-collecting fiend, for sure! And this recipe has stood the test of time really well. Why? Well, you can’t beat a recipe that has just 4 ingredients and takes about 3 minutes to make (plus 2 hours in the freezer).

In fact, I really thought about putting having the title of this post be “The Easiest Pie Ever!” Decided it wasn’t descriptive enough, so I went with “Pink Lemonade Pie.” But this pie is so simple that I just handed off the recipe to my 9 year old little girl and she made it herself.
