Frozen Lemon Cream Bars....

This is another treasured recipe from More With Less. And I say treasured -because its just so good! Its like a homemade ice cream sandwich! Yummy!
Beat until stiff:
1 can evaporated milk, chilled
Gradually add:
3/4 cup sugar (I used cane)
Add 3T lemon juice
grated rind of 1 lemon
Beat until very stiff.
Roll into crumbs:
12 graham crackers
Pour half cracker crumbs into 9x9.
Pour cream over and top with remaining crumbs.
Cover well and freeze.
You can use other flavors as well!
Or leftover puddings- or even yogurts.

My mother used to do something like this with a strawberry flavor. I can remember her chilling the can of milk and whipping it. She poured the mixture into graham cracker pie crusts and froze it. I'll have to look through her recipes and see if I can find it. I think we would really like the lemon! Thanks for sharing this and for bringing back a fond memory!

Many blessings!

I'm so happy that I actually had a can of evap. milk lurking in the pantry. It is now in the fridge for it's chilling. You always post the BEST recipes.

Connie, I sure hope you find it!! (and post it!) ;-)

This has been in my pics files for months and I just happened to stumble on it last night and remembered that I never put it up.
I hope your family enjoys it!

Millie said...

I was on a huge lemon kick this past summer and I have copied your recipe for a later date as it sounds so refreshing.
