Lemon Freeze is an old fashioned icebox treat came from my grandma. The tang of the lemon combined with the sweetened condensed milk and mellowed by the whipped cream layer makes the perfect summer treat. Another plus, you won't have to turn on your oven and it will come together in about 10 minutes. Just make sure you make it in advance because it does need time to freeze.
A few years ago, I put together a cookbook of her most remembered recipes. Lemon Freeze was everyone's favorite. We've changed the recipe only slightly. It used to call for 2 eggs. These days we know the dangers of raw eggs, so we don't include them. My mom tells me it tastes just the same as it did when grandma used to make it.
