I am a mother of two and wife to an amazing man! My kids keep me on my toes and I love every minute of it! Over at my blog you can take a peek into my creative life and see what I work on when I’m not cooking, cleaning, and chasing kids around!
Today I’m going to show you how to make mini Pink Lemonade Pies. My daughter just turned two and I made them for her birthday! These pies are so refreshing and cool! You will love them on any summer day!

Mini Pink Lemonade Pies Recipe

These are super easy to make! So easy my 4 year old son helped me : ) Now I can’t take complete credit for these, you can find the full Recipe at Creative Homemaking.
–The change I made was that I used 3/4 of the can of the pink lemonade concentrate–
For the topping I used my own recipe

{Ingredients}
2 cups Heavy whipping cream
2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 to 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract (based on taste preference)
few drops of red food coloring (optional)

First thing you need to do is put a large metal bowl in the freezer and chill it for about 10-15 minutes. Then pour your whipping cream into the bowl and whip it until thickened and peaks are about to form. Next mix in your sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice. Whip until peaks form. Stir in your red food coloring until you get the desired shade of pink.

I tried to make my own mini pie shells out of graham crackers, but let’s just say that was an EPIC fail! So I bought some pre-made mini pie shells at the grocery store!Then pour your batter into each shell and top with your whipped cream. Place it in freezer until you’re ready to serve! This is great if you need to make them the night before!!

To Garnish I cut up graham crackers into little triangles (this was kind of difficult being it’s a cracker, but I made it work best I could) and added a lemon wedge : ) Or add whatever else you think might look cute. Here is a few things I did with them.

Now, you will have some leftovers… the pie filling is meant for a whole pie and the mini pie shells don’t use up much so I made some extra whipped cream to use in some Mason Jar Desserts (if you don’t want extra, cut the whipped cream recipe in 1/2). I’ll be sharing that over at my sister’s blog, Once a Mom Always a Cook here in a few days, but this is what they look like : ) Cute huh?!

These little pies really made the party fun! They are so cool and refreshing! I just love them! I tried to give away a few of the mason jar desserts but my husband did everything but tackle me to the floor! He was NOT giving them up! Can’t lie.. kinda made me feel good : )
