Southern Lemon "Ice Box Pie" Cake Recipe

I loved the yummy lemon ice box pie my Nanny used to make. I have never found a recipe that even comes close to hers. This amazing cake gives you the same yummy flavor, but in a cake instead of a pie. Just remember, this needs to be made a day in advance so it has time to chill properly. Enjoy!

What You Need:

1 package yellow cake mix, prepared according to package directions

3/4 cup lemon juice

1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk

1 12-ounce carton frozen whipped topping (that's Cool Whip y'all)

What You Do:

Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the box for a two-layer cake. Bake and cool, then slice into four layers using a thread.

Make filling by combining lemon juice and sweetened condensed milk.

Reserve 1/2 cup of the filling for the top and sides. Frost and stack the layers with the filling. Combine the reserved lemon filling with Cool Whip and frost the top and sides.

Cover the cake and refrigerate over night. This is some good eatin'!

And I get my slice when? Since I brought over two quiches, do I get two pies? LOL
