I had some requests to post the recipes of what I served at my Girl’s Day/Night Out this month, so here they are!
The first one was from my childhood days! My mom’s best friend made this at a picnic! I was about 9 years old and I remember asking my mom to get the recipe from her! It is a family favorite and always a hit in the summertime!
KEY LIME PIE
1 graham cracker crust Mix:1 can sweetened condensed milk1 T. lime juice6 T. lemon juice1 pkg. lemon-lime Kool Aid (the old fashioned CHEAP envelope kind)
Let this set 5 mn. Using mixer, mix in a medium tub of Cool Whip (8 oz. tub)Put this in pie shell, and set in refrigerator. Must be kept cool.
This next recipe I found on one of my favorite bloggers, Laurie. Her blog is “Stamping Up North” and can be found HERE. If you click on her RECIPES sidebar, you will find OODLES of yummy things to make there! I still think she could write a cookbook! I already know the next recipe I am going to try!
Anywhoooo…..that is where I found this treat that I served. They are ADDICTING! She has a prettier picture on her blog of these sweets, but here is my lame picture of these in production.
