Easter Lemon Icebox Pie

In keeping with the tradition of Easter, a fabulous dessert must be present for Easter Dinner.
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.

This is our breakfast nook and I wanted to make Good Friday extra special.
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:)

We enjoy all sorts of Lemon desserts, so here are a few others that I have shared in the past.

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...

  9. I use to make a similar recipe all the time, but haven't in years. Now I think I might need to whip one up. I was just wondering if in the recipe above, the 8 got left off the amount of cream cheese?

    Warm hugs,

  10. Happy Easter dear Joyce!
    This post made my mouth water!
    Enjoy your family=

  11. Jemma~~~thank you for a scrumptious recipe. I love anything 'anything' lemon and this sounds light and delightful! Your table is lovely.

    Wishing you a wonderful and blessed Easter...


  12. I enjoyed this cheerful post. The flowers, the pretty eggs and, of course, the pie. No holiday is complete without pie. Happy Easter.

  13. I have had this before Jemma and it is yummy. I plan on making coconut cream pie in the morning before church. One of our families favorites! Happy Easter to you and your family.

  14. My mouth is drooling right now Jemma...even with a full belly from Easter food...still drooling!!! :)

  15. That sounds so refreshing! Definitely a keeper for the upcoming Spring season of baking. Just seeing this or I would have been tempted to make it for today. I chose a Krispy Kreme donut bundt cake....we will see how that tastes in a little bit!!

  16. this looks fabulous -- I'll have to add it to my recipe collection!

    And everything looks so very, very pretty!

  17. Hello Jemma, I love your pretty flowers! I hope you had a nice Easter!
    Thanks for sharing your awesome recipe at Cooking and Crafting with J&J!

  18. The pie sounds delicious, Jemma. However, one question...is it supposed to be 8 ounces of cream cheese? I have an abundance of lemons right now and this would be tasty!

  19. This looks delicious! Lemon really announces spring doesn't it? Thanks for the recipe!

  20. Good morning sweet friend. We make this pie too. It's so wonderful in the summer with burgers or bbq.

  21. This sounds amazing!!

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  22. Jemma this looks absolutely delicious! Blessings, Cecilia

  23. How crazy is this.....I was just thinking about this exact recipe today and wondering if I could substitute lime for a lime pie? What do you think? Sheila
