When my blog was two weeks old…
…I met Andrea.
It was a long time ago.
Back when the blog began.
Back when I hired a photographer to take pictures of the house because I still had the kind of camera that you threw away.
Back when I had never even heard of PicMonkey.
Or editing photos.
Or making arrows.
And so when I posted about the before and after of the butler’s pantry and wanted to show everyone how the butler’s pantry was right off the kitchen and it used to be a closet and now it was so much more and I wanted to reach through the screen and point to it. I wanted to point it out and show everyone…..
…..but I couldn’t because I didn’t know how to make an arrow.
And then Andrea and her arrow came to the rescue. 🙂
She added an arrow to my picture and sent it to me…..
….and we’ve been friends ever since.
For two years now she has inspired me with her creativity and innovation and generosity and of course….all her amazing recipes.
And today she’s sharing a fun recipe for the summer.
I was so excited…..but I told her if I was going to make it….
…..it had to be easy….preferably in a jar. 🙂
So here’s so-easy-you-have-to-make-it-because-it-looks-delicious-summer-recipe…..
... Frozen Limeade Pie In a Jar.
Frozen Limeade Pie In a Jar
1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
1/2 teaspoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream
12 oz. of frozen limeade concentrate
Zest of two limes (optional)
Container of Cool Whip or Fresh Whipped Cream
Place slightly softened ice cream and the container of limeade in your mixer bowl and then blend until thoroughly combined and smooth.
Fold 1/2 of your lime zest through the blended mixture.
Prepare your graham cracker mixture by placing the crumbs in a mixing bowl.
Add your cinnamon and sugar and stir through.
Melt your stick of butter and add to the crumb mixture. Mix till the butter is totally combined with the crumbs.
Place 2 tablespoons of the graham cracker mixture in your 8 ounce wide mouth mason jars and press to form a nice crust on the bottom…you can add a little bit more if you would like.
Take a 6th of your mixture and scoop it in on top of the graham cracker crust.
Top it with a big dollop of Cool Whip or Fresh Whipped Cream.
Sprinkle fresh lime zest over the top and add a cherry to the top.
See what I mean…..a recipe like that….
……and she makes arrows. too. 🙂
