Recipe for cooking Lemon Ice Box Pie. Here is a classic old fashioned light and refreshing summer dessert.


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 baked 9" pie shell (follow this link for recipe and directions), cooled
  • whipped cream for garnish


  1. Makes 1 Pie
  2. Combine sugar, flour, and salt in a heavy saucepan and mix well. Beat egg yolks, and add yolks, water and butter to the mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick then remove from heat, about 15 minutes. When partially cool, stir in lemon juice and zest. Pour into baked pie shell. Chill completely. Serve garnished with whipped cream. A sprinkling of extra lemon zest on top also looks pretty.
