Kara's Pink Lemonade Pie

Hello fellow crafters! I'm Kara from Creations by Kara, and I'm thrilled that Crystal asked me to be a part of recipe week. I love crafting and DIY projects, but I also love spending time in my kitchen trying new recipes.

Today I'm sharing a dessert recipe that is just perfect for summertime-- Pink Lemonade Pie. It only takes a few minutes to put together, and it is so refreshing on a hot day. You can use a purchased crust to make things even easier. I used a pastry crust this time because we were out of graham crackers. You can use whatever you like. Oh, and if all you have is regular lemonade, I'm sure it would work just fine. :)

Pink Lemonade Pie

1 9" baked pie crust-pastry or graham cracker
8oz cream cheese, softened
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
6oz frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed (I used half of a 12oz can)
4oz Cool Whip
Few drops red food coloring (optional)
Beat cream cheese till fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk, then lemonade. Mix well. Fold in Cool Whip and food coloring. Pour into pie crust. Chill for at least four hours or till set. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.

Thanks for having me Crystal! I hope that all of you will stop over and say hi. I love meeting new bloggy friends!
