Wouldn't you agree...
I asked my husband what dessert he would like for Easter Sunday.
"Would you like a pineapple upside down cake?" I asked.
"Oh, no it is tasty but too gooey."
"How about a coconut cream pie?"
" I was thinking about that Lemon Icebox pie that you made when Dad and Deb where here."
Decision is made, and Here is the Easter recipe I am sharing with you!
I am serving this sweet and tangy baker's confection on some of my favorite Spring plates
they are the Lenox Butterfly Meadow Collection.
Any plate that has butterflies and flowers as it's pattern is a favorite of mine.
The color purple has been significant all throughout Lent.
This year Lent began February 10 and ends March 26th.
I have kept a bouquet or plant of purple flowers throughout the season of Lent.
Traditionally purple will be taken away and black will be incorporated on Good Friday to communicate the movement of this sacred time.
I searched for many recipes for this Lemon Icebox Pie, and all of them are very similiar.
Since, I do have some favorite chef's and Emeril Lagasse is one of them, I chose his recipe for Lemon Icebox Pie.
I have also included the recipe below, in printable form for you.
Fresh lemons and lemon zest are a must for this most delicious dessert.
Either a homemade graham cracker crust recipe here, or purchased one will work.
Please note that this recipe uses 1-8 ounce package of cream cheese at room temp.
Not just 1 ounce!
Thank you my dear friend Carol:)

Thinking of you all on this Holy Friday.
I will be back on Easter Sunday sharing the joy of the resurrection with you all.
Until then my friends...
