This is one of my favorite dessert recipes. I used to request my mom make it for my birthday each year when I was a kid. It’s great during the summer months because it has lots of fresh berries, although I will eat it just about any time of year! It’s also a fairly simple recipe to put together – just make sure you don’t accidentally substitute salt for the sugar in the crust recipe (I learned the dangers of this the hard way during a dinner party a few years back…I won’t my mince words – it was a disaster!!)
1 can Eagle Brand Milk (sweetened condensed milk..very thick and sweet)
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 pint fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
2 cups crushed graham crackers (or sugar cookie of choice)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
Whip milk and lemon juice, fold in berries.
Make the graham cracker crust: Mix the crushed graham crackers, melted butter, and sugar together. Press into pan, bake crust at 400F (200C) for 5-8 min. Cool crust.
Pour the condensed milk/berry mixture into the graham cracker crust. Refrigerate.
One recipe is good for an 8×8 square pan.
