Flexible Frozen Lemon Pie Recipe

Frozen Lemon Pie Recipe

This is the ultimate Flexible Frozen Pie because, once you master the technique, you can change up virtually every element of this make-ahead crowd fave to create limitless treats! 

In this recipe, I use a store-bought sugar cookie dough (thank goodness for that invention) to create a crust. Then, I top it off with layers of vanilla ice cream and a homemade lemon curd that’s the perfect combination of sweet / tangy. If you have a copy of my cookbook, FOOD YOU WANT For The Life You Crave, you’ll find a similar chocolate and brownie version.

Make this pie now and keep it in the freezer for when last-minute guests stop by or cravings hit. That way, a tasty treat will always be within arm’s reach!
