Make this Easy Lemon Icebox Pie for Memorial Day Weekend

Easy Memorial Day Dessert Recipe

Good news! Vacation rentals in Destin, Florida are open just in time for Memorial Day weekend, and we could not be any more excited! We’re getting together with family, going to the beach, and cooking out this weekend. Since the weather is supposed to be beautiful, a cool and delicious dessert seems to fit the bill perfectly, which is why we’re making our favorite Lemon Icebox Pie recipe. This easy Memorial Day dessert recipe comes together in just a few minutes, but requires some time to cool, so we recommend starting early in the morning or the night before to give it time to chill overnight. The longer it chills the better, but sometimes you just don’t have that much time! Here is how to make this quick recipe below:

Memorial Day Dessert at the Beach


2 egg yolks 1 large egg
2 14 oz cans of sweetened condensed milk 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 prepared graham cracker crust 1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 tbsp sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. To ensure your oven is at the right temperature, give an oven thermometer a try.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and one large egg until fully combined.
  3. Slowly stir in the sweetened condensed milk until blended.
  4. Add the lemon juice and stir to blend. Be careful not to overmix!
  5. Pour into the graham cracker crust and bake for at least 25 minutes, or until the outside edges look set and the center jiggles just slightly.
  6. Remove and set on a pie rack to cool to room temperature, then transfer to the refrigerator for at least six hours. This pie tastes better the longer it sets, so if you can let it sit overnight, we recommend it!
  7. For the topping, stir together the sour cream, sugar, and vanilla until blended.
  8. One to two hours before serving, set your oven to 350 degrees and bake for 10 minutes. Return to the refrigerator to cool for another 45 minutes before serving.
  9. Enjoy!
