Lemonade Dessert

Okay, this is a little late for an Easter dessert...
but not for your next cookout

Here's a tasty way to finish off your upcoming barbecue. Published in Country Women in the June/July '07 magazine, adults and kids will be standing in line for this easy-to-make treat.

It's a great recipe and to vary the flavor, try changing out the concentrates to limeade, orange, pina colada, even margarita.

Lemonade Dessert

12-15 servings

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup cold butter
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
1 can (12 ounces) frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
    In a small bowl, combine flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in pecans. Spread in a single layer into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 375° for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown, stirring once. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
    In a large bowl, beat ice cream and lemonade until blended. Sprinkle half of the crumbles into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. dish. Spread with ice cream mixture; sprinkle with remaining crumbles. Cover and freeze overnight. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving.


    1. I do love the crumble.... the different texture must be so fun

    2. Oh, I can't wait for summer!! This looks like the perfect BBQ finale :)

    3. This looks like a dessert I could make. Simple ingredients. I love lemon desserts.

    4. this would be perfect, with the hotdogs and hamburgers we are having tomorrow night, my son is cooking a ham tonight, but this looks like I can whip it up in no time flat~ great recipe to share with us, hope you have a great Easter! sounds really refreshing``

    5. This sounds fantastic because I love anything with lemon. I'd have to modify a bit and use coconut milk and coconut oil to replace the dairy but it would probably work anyway.

    6. Love it. Lemon desserts are to die for. This looks fantastic!

    7. Golly, this looks and sounds divine....just printed this out for BBQ season. And hardly any fuss at all.
