Favorite summer pie...sunny and hot 90*

Perhaps some of you haven't filled your freezers with produce yet. Could it be the 100 degree days have cut back your harvest, or is it the constant rain? I know that should be good this time of year, but too much of a good thing can ruin things too. Anyway, if you have room in your freezer to set a pie pan flat make  one (or two)  of these and have 'em on hand for company or your own supper on a hectic night. It's so easy and light and refreshing, it's one of our hot weather favorites.................................
                                 Refreshing Lemon Ice pie
1 large can( 12 oz.) evaporated milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. lemon extract
1 cup sugar
graham cracker crust

Place milk (Undiluted) in a large bowl and place in the freezer till just beginning to freeze around edges.
Beat with a stand or hand mixer until foamy, add sugar, continue to beat until soft peaks form, add lemon juice and extract, beat just to incorporated and spoon into a prepared graham cracker crust(will be quite high, just pile it in.)
Place immediately into the freezer and freeze for four hours or overnight.
Can be cut and eaten straight from the freezer for a refreshing summer treat!
