Lemon Ice Box Pie

So last week I made these cupcakes. One of the problems with them, despite the mismatched decorations, was the copious amounts of leftover frosting. I supposed that could be seen as somewhat of a blessing- you know for those cold, lonely, nights when you're curled up in bed watching the Notebook, by yourself. But alas, it just takes up too much space in my fridge! Sooooo... I made a pie with it!!! One of my better ideas I must say.

Welp, I didn't have enough frosting to make a denser pie and, and to be honest, I didn't have a blender to make a proper crust either. I don't know what you would call this then, a wonder in the making, maybe. Seriously, it is that good!

The crust was made of chocolate spritz I had made weeks and weeks ago. They were particularly bland so I thought they were make a good crust. Unfortunately, I don't have a food processor or blender or rolling pin anything fancy like that to crumble up the cookies with so, I just put them in a plastic bag and attempted to crush them with my hands... that didn't work so well... they just kinda broke into small pieces. That made for a pretty crunch and rugged crust. That's why I said it was a wonder in the making! ;)

The frosting was made of powered sugar, butter, lemon juice and yellow food coloring. To it, I added whipped heavy cream and actual whipped cream, like from my freezer. It had a creamy consistency and I knew it would never solidify in the fridge so, in the freezer it went!

And it came out delicious!! My boyfriend, who doesn't like sweets, said I was converting him with it! ha! It was only a matter of time, Mwahaha!!
