The other day as I was visiting
some of my favorite blogs
I came across this recipe
on Beth Marie's Blog.
It looked like the perfect
dessert for President's Day.
After all wasn't
George Washington noted for
cutting down a cherry tree
and then NOT LYING about
cutting it down?
Well, thank you, I am honoring
good old Georgie's honesty,
by whipping up this pie.
I didn't have a graham cracker crust
so I made my own.
Here's my super-duper easy
recipe for a perfect pie crust.
Shhhhh-It's a secret-
While the crust cooled
I whipped up the cream cheese,
and added the Eagle brand
condensed sweetened milk.
I then added the lemon juice
Yes! You MUST add lemon juice-
it is what makes it SET-
and the Cool Whip.
Of course I added a liberal tablespoon
I wish I could lie and say this is
Calorie Free but someone
called me to task for my post
I think the inference was that I might
go to Hell for lying!;<(
So, for today, I am walking the
straight and narrow, cuz
I don't like HOT!
No. I. Don't!
Ps. SweetCheeks told me the other day
that the shorter you are the closer
you are to Hell! LOL~
~except for babies- babies don't count
cuz babies can't go to Hell.
Thank you for that information, SweetCheeks.
I said-well, you are still pretty short.
I guess it goes by age because she
informed me that she is the
tallest one in her room.
I am gonna start hanging out with
the Munchkins if can find them~
