Lemon Crunch Pie

I have been making this pie as a dessert for breakfast at the Bed and Breakfast Inn we owned for 17+ years. It was always a hit! And the best thing is it’s SO easy to make! And you don’t have to bake it and heat up your house during hot summer months. Just make it the day before, or at least 2 hours before you want to serve it, put it in the freezer, and pull it out and refrigerate it for about an hour before serving time (if it’s completely frozen). It’s a nice cool refreshing dessert on a hot summer day. Enjoy!
