Icebox pies always brings back freshman year nostalgia when I think about my roommate who would make lemon icebox pie. It’s easy, effortless and has been my go-to dessert ever since. Being an avid lover of apple pie, I’ve altered the recipe to be made with apple pie filling instead of a lemon-flavored pie. I’ve even gotten compliments from this pie being like ‘apple ice cream’.


Prep Time: 20 minutes
Chill Time: 2 hours or more

Servings: 8


1 bar of cream cheese (8 ounces)
1/4 cup of sugar (confectionery sugar preferred)
1 can of apple filling
Keebler: ready crust graham pie crust (or make your own pie crust)
1 container of cool whip

1. Take out the bar of cream cheese and place it in a bowl.

2. Mix 1/4 cup of sugar into the bowl of cream cheese. You can add more sugar depending on how sweet you want your cream cheese base to be.
