🥘 Ingredients Needed

📋 Recipe Card
Cream Cheese Lemonade Pie with Sugar Cone Crust
- 5 ounces sugar cones (about 12 cones)
- 5 tablespoons butter (melted)
- 1/2 cup cream cheese (about 4 ounces)
- 14 ounces chilled sweetened condensed milk (1 can)
- 6 ounces lemonade concentrate, thawed (1 can)
- 12 ounces whipped topping, thawed (1 container)
- Crush the sugar cones into crumbs (use a food processor or place the cones in a sealed plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin). Melt the butter on the stovetop or in the microwave (30 seconds at a time on 50% power until melted).
- Combine the sugar cone crumbs and butter, and press into a 7 inch pie plate. Place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
- After the crust has set, mix the cream cheese and the sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl with a hand mixer until smooth.
- Add the lemonade concentrate and mix until well combined.
- Gently fold in the whipped topping.
- Pour the filling into the refrigerated sugar cone crust (you may have some filling left over depending on how deep your pie plate is). Place in the freezer for 2 hours (or more) before serving.
- This pie can be made in advance and stored in the freezer. Once frozen, cover with foil to protect it. If you are freezing it for more than a day or two, also place it in a resealable plastic bag or wrap tightly in plastic wrap to prevent freezer burn.
- Combining the cream cheese with the rest of the mixture will be easier if you let it soften first.
- For both the cream cheese and whipped topping, you can use either full fat or fat free.
- If you don't have lemon concentrate, substitute with about 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice.
