Cool Treats Week

Since we are deep into the summer, and the temperatures seem to continue to climb, I thought I’d share a week’s worth of cool treats.  I know my sweet tooth doesn’t go away with the heat, and a trip to the Dairy Queen isn’t always possible, so each day this week I will post a no-bake, cool treat.

Cranberry Parfait Pie

1 graham cracker or shortbread crust

3/4 cup cranberry juice cocktail

1 (3 0z.) package lemon jello

1 (16 oz.) can whole cranberry sauce

1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel (optional)

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

1 pint vanilla ice cream

whipped cream

In saucepan heat cranberry juice to boiling, remove from heat.  Add jello and stir until dissolved.  Pour mixture into large mixing bowl.  Stir in cranberry sauce, lemon peel, and lemon juice.  Add ice cream by large spoonfuls, and stir until melted.  Chill mixture until mixture mounds when spooned.  Spread into pie shell.  Chill several hours or overnight.  Dollop each serving with whipped cream.
