lemonade ice cream pie from the gooseberry patch


after a recent move, with all that unpacking,, i came across a perpetual calendar from gooseberry patch that i'd stuffed in a drawer quite awhile ago. we moved to wv during a really hot spell (temps over 100* for many days). so you can imagine, on july 18th, when this was the "every day" highlight, how glad we were to have this cooool recipe on hand! easy (as pie!!) and extremely refreshing summer dessert. makes 2 pies. prep time does not include thawing time--but on a hot summer day--thawing doesn't take more than a drive home from the grocery store! cooking time includes freezing time. plan ahead!!! the hard part is waiting for them to "set" ... so ... go jump through the sprinkler!!!
