Lemon Ice Box Pie

This is one of those recipes that I grew up eating.  Lucky me!  My Mom made this many times when we had company and it was always a hit!  

Looking through my recipes the other day I came across this pie and decided to make it for an upcoming ladies meeting (I brought home an empty pan, by the way!).  It was just as delicious as I remember and was crazy easy, too which is always a plus!

The creamy, lemon-y filling is poured into a traditional graham cracker crust then sprinkled with extra graham cracker crumbs.  After sitting in the refrigerator for a few hours, slice into pieces and enjoy!  It really is that simple! And it's perfect in the summer because it doesn't require turning on the oven!  I don't know how many times I've passed up making something during the summer months because it required baking and I didn't want to heat up my kitchen.

Lemon Ice Box Pie is perfect for parties, BBQ's, get-togethers and when you just want something light and sweet.  If you're looking for a great summer dessert, look no further!

Magic Bars (or Magic Cookie Bars, Hello Dollies, or Cookie Layer Bars)… we all have some variation of this dessert in our recipe box! I knew I had to come up with a low carb option, since these are just too good to give up!

The main unhealthy culprits in traditional Magic Bars are the sweeten condensed milk and the crust.  They are just full of sugar and carbs.  So, these are replaced with Keto friendly ingredients. Stick with me, since the bars have a few more ingredients than the traditional dessert.  But it's well worth it!
