Lemon Icebox Pie
Cool and delicious, this pie is perfect for topping off a Tex-Mex or barbecue dinner.
With mixer running at medium-low speed, add the lemon juice, lemon zest and food coloring (see Note, below).
Remove the bowl from the mixer, and gently fold in half of the whipped topping. Reserve remaining half for garnish.
Pour filling into a prepared pie shell, and chill for several hours until set. Serve pie with a dollop of whipped topping. Makes one 9-inch pie.

Lemon Icebox Pie NotesYellow food coloring is pretty subtle. Six drops result in the palest of yellows; eight is better. But don't go overboard. The result should be pale yellow -- not traffic light yellow.
