Lemon Icebox Pie

This is my mother’s recipe, and if I’m not mistaken, was also my grandmother’s and great-grandmother’s. Very simple, and requires NO BAKING and NO EGGS. 🙂


1 small can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 graham cracker crust
1 small tub whipped cream (optional)


In a mixing bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice. Pour mixture into pie crust and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Top with whipped cream if desired.

Tiramisu Anacapri

Recipe Source: Cooking Light, December 2000 / via Southern Mamas

Note: This tiramisu was a hit with our Test Kitchens staff, who agreed that it’s one of the best they’ve come across. Ladyfingers can be found in the bakery or the frozen-food section of the supermarket. We used soft ladyfingers, which are made to be split.


1 cup cold water
1 (14-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 (1.4-ounce) package sugar-free vanilla instant pudding mix
1 (8-ounce) block 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1 (8-ounce) tub frozen reduced-calorie whipped topping, thawed
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup KahlĂșa (coffee-flavored liqueur)
1 tablespoon instant espresso or 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
24 cake-like ladyfingers (2 [3-ounce] packages)
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa, divided


Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Cover surface with plastic wrap; chill 30 minutes or until firm.

Remove plastic wrap, and add cream cheese. Beat with a mixer at medium speed until well-blended. Gently fold in whipped topping.

Combine hot water, KahlĂșa, and espresso. Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise. Arrange 16 ladyfinger halves, flat sides down, in a trifle bowl or large glass bowl. Drizzle with 1/2 cup KahlĂșa mixture. Spread one-third of pudding mixture evenly over ladyfingers; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cocoa. Repeat layers, ending with cocoa. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)

Caramel Pie

Recipe Source: Phillip Adams


1 14 oz can Borden’s sweetened condensed milk
graham cracker (or other if preferred) pie crust
1 tub Cool Whip


In a large pot or dutch oven, place the entire unopened can of milk. Cover with water and bring to a boil.

Boil for 3 hours. (Do not exceed 3 hours or it will burn!)

Open the can CAREFULLY and pour straight into pie crust — it will have the looks and consistancy of mud.

Set aside or in the refridgerator to cool completely. Top with Cool Whip or other preferred topping(s).
