I am in need of an old recipe that my mom used to make for my dad. I looked in her 1947 cookbook but many of the pages are missing, which I’m sure is the recipe I am looking for.
It is called LEMON ICEBOX PIE. The best I have ever tasted. Thanks for all your help.

Lemon Icebox Pie

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
3 egg yolks
1 (8-inch) prebaked pie shell or crumb crust

3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream or tartar
1/4 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In medium bowl, combine milk, lemon juice, and zest; blend in egg yolks. Pour into cooled crust.

Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks from. Gradually beat in the sugar until stiff. Spread over filling; seal to edge of crust. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until meringue is golden brown.

I think this is what you are looking for. Living in the deep south their icebox pies had condensed milk in it. I hope you like it.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Icebox Pie - Recipe


1/4 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
4 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb stalks (about 1 1/4 pounds), or one 20-ounce bag frozen chopped rhubarb
2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled, or frozen strawberries, thawed
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 prepared crumb crust

  1. Combine the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of the water in a small bowl and stir until the mixture is combined.

  2. Combine the sugar, rhubarb, and the remaining 1/2 cup of water in a medium-size saucepan. Bring the pot to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the rhubarb until it is soft and falling apart and most of the water has evaporated, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until the mixture is thickened. Cook an additional 2 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the strawberries, butter, and vanilla.

  3. Scrape the mixture into the prepared crust. Cover the pie with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the filling is completely set, at least 6 hours and up to 1 day.

Orange Ice Box Pie

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup freshly squeezed, strained orange juice
2 Tbs. lemon juice
Zest of three oranges and one lemon
2 eggs, separated
Eight-inch pie shell
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar

  2. Make a meringue by beating egg whites in a completely clean, grease-free bowl (the best possible is a copper bowl) with cream of tartar at high speed, until peaks begin to form. Add sugar a little at a time, until completely blended, then add vanilla. Beat until stuff but not dry. Carefully Fold in the remaining zest with a rubber spatula to distribute evenly. Spread meringue on top of pie.
  3. Bake pie at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until top is lightly brown. Chill several hours before serving.

Blueberry Icebox Pie


* 1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs (11 whole crackers)
* 5 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
* 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not the quick-cooking kind)
* 3 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* Generous pinch of salt


* 1/4 cup cornstarch
* 1/4 cup water
* 5 cups fresh blueberries, divided
* 2/3 cup sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Prepare the crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, grind together the graham cracker crumbs, butter, oats, brown sugar, vanilla and salt until moistened, about 30 seconds.

Press crust mixture evenly across the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate and all the way up the sides of the pan, packing it tightly with your fingertips so it is even and compacted. Bake the crust at 350 degrees until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Let it cool completely before filling it.

Prepare the filling: In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and water and stir mixture until completely smooth.

Combine 3 cups of blueberries, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. Cook an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and remaining blueberries.

Scrape filling into prepared crust and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until filling is completely set, at least 6 hours and up to 1 day. Serve chilled. Makes a 9-inch pie, to serve 6 to 8.

Pina Colada Icebox Pie (No Alcohol)

  3. Remove from the heat and whisk in the softened gelatin, dissolving it completely.
  4. Whisk in the coconut extract. Cover and refridgerate, whisking occasionally, until the mixture reaches the consistency of a raw egg white, about 1 hours.
  5. With a spatula, fold in the whipped topping and pour mixture into the pie crust.
  6. Sprinkle with toasted coconut, if desired, along the rim of the pie, where the filling meets the crust.
  7. Cover and chill until firm, at least 2 hours.

Cherry Icebox Pie

2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
3 eggs
1 (21 oz) can pie cherries
1 prepared crust-vanilla wafer, graham cracker, or prebaked pastry shell

Gianduia Pie

* 3/4 cup hazelnuts, toasted and skinned
* 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, chilled
* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* One 13-ounce jar Nutella
* 1 prepared crumb crust (recipe follows)
  1. Place the skinned hazelnuts in the workbowl of a food processor and chop them very fine.

  2. Combine the cream and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and using an electric mixer whip the cream until stiff peaks from.

  3. Place the Nutella in a medium-size mixing bowl and stir in one quarter of the whipped cream. Gently fold the lightened Nutella mixture back into the remaining whipped cream. Fold in the chopped hazelnuts.

  4. Scrape the filling into the prepared pie shell and smooth top with a rubber spatula. Cover the pie with plastic wrap and refrigerate it until the filling is completely set, at least 6 hours and up to 1 day.

    Note: To toast and skin hazelnuts, place the nuts on a baking sheet and bake them in a preheated 350-degree oven until they are fragrant, about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, wrap the nuts in a clean kitchen towel, and allow the nuts to cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Rub the nuts with the towel to remove the skins (it’s okay if bits of skin stick to some of the nuts).

    Dressing it up
    Chocolate sauce would be overkill. Whipped cream is my choice.

Chocolate Cookie and Nut Crust
Nuts add some crunch and even more richness to a basic chocolate cookie crust. Use less butter, since the ground nuts add fat.

* 22 Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers (to yield about 1 cup crumbs)
* 1/2 cup pecans, walnuts, almonds, or skinned hazelnuts
* 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the cookies and nuts in the workbowl of a food processor and process them until they are finely ground. Combine the crumb-and-nut mixture, butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla in a medium-size mixing bowl and stir until the crumb-and-nut mixture is moistened.
  3. Press the mixture evening across the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate and all the way up the sides of the pan, packing it tightly with your fingertips so it is even and compacted.
  4. Bake the crust until it is crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Let it cool completely before filling it. (This crust may be wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen up to 1 month.)


4 1/2 cups peeled and sliced apples (about 4 medium-sized apples)
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 small box peach Jello (4-serving size, NOT sugar-free), dry
1 small box vanilla pudding (4-serving size, Cook-and-Serve, NOT instant and NOT sugar-free), dry
9-inch baked and cooled pie shell

1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar

Combine apples, water, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg in a 4-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and cook until tender, but not soft and mushy, 5-8 minutes. You want the slices to hold their shape. Gradually stir in dry Jello and pudding mixes. Bring to a boil again, turn off heat and let stand 5 minutes. Pour into baked pie shell.
For the topping, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and brown sugar. Sprinkle over top of pie.
Chill 2-3 hours until filling is set up.

Cook’s notes - Sugar-free Jello and pudding do not work in this recipe. They don’t dissolve very well and you end up with unappetizing clumps.
NOTE: Add nutmeg, if desired
