Creamy Lemon Icebox Pie

Lemon fans beware, you will likely go crazy for this Creamy Lemon Icebox Pie. It's simply got to be one of the best pie recipes out there, not to mention dessert recipes. I can't decide what the best part is, the cream cheese or the crushed lemon candies!

This creamy lemon icebox pie looks very yummy. It seems very lemony which I like. I was surprised to see that it was layered. I like that. I think the cream cheese layer adds another great dimension and takes this dessert to a never level. Decadent and indulgent. This dessert looks like a winner.
