Lemon Cloud Pie Recipe

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are enjoying a truly blessed and happy one and enjoying your day. We are finally enjoying some pretty Sunshine after many days of rain. But not complaining, we love getting the rain. With spring in mind, I thought it would be fun to share this yummy recipe with you all. My Mom had this recipe over Christmas and it was so delicious....I was shocked when I learned how easy it was to prepare....So if you're bringing the dessert at your Easter celebration this year, you might want to consider this yummy and very pretty treat!

Lemon Cloud Pie


1 prepared 9-inch (6 oz.) shortbread crumb crust
1 can (14 oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 cup (about 3 medium lemons) fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
Grated lemon peel or lemon slices (optional)


BEAT sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and peel in small mixer bowl until combined. Fold in whipped topping; pour into crust. Cover; refrigerate for 2 hours or until set. Garnish with lemon peel. NOTE: For a lower calorie and fat version of this recipe, a 6-oz. prepared reduced-fat graham cracker crust and fat-free frozen whipped topping can be substituted for the shortbread crumb crust and frozen whipped topping.
