Easy as Lemon Pie

This was the easiest pie ever. I am talking EASY. Neil's favorite pie is lemon. I am not that big of a fan, but I wanted to make him one for Valentine's Day. I searched the Internet and found this totally easy recipe that only has 4 ingredients! He said it was good, but not as good as his grandmothers... We have a long running joke about lemon pie. He brought me a piece of his grandmothers "wonderful" lemon pie when we first started dating. Well, I took one bite and tossed it. I guess it had been sitting out for a while. Neil came over later to visit and saw the pie in the trash. He thought I had maybe dropped it on the floor because NO ONE would EVER throw away Grandmothers Lemon pie! Well...I did and I will never hear the end of it. So, here is a tasty lemon pie...and EASY.

small can sweetened condensed milk
1 container Cool Whip
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 graham cracker crust

Mix all the ingredients together and pour into crust. Put in the refrigerator until set (about an hour).

First off, I love that Neil has commented on Messy Aprons! And second off, that story is hilarious about Neil's grandma's pie.

I've always made this recipe. It's so easy and quick. My MIL used to make lemon meringue pie, and it was awesome!
