If you’ve been looking for a no bake lemon bars recipe, we’ve got the perfect one just for you!
Our Lemon Freeze Dessert comes right from the 1960s that my Grandma clipped from her magazine!
No bake lemon desserts are really popular in the summer, but I think that this lemon dessert could be served anytime.
You can make this vintage recipe in a pie pan or use an 8” square pan that will give you some really yummy no bake lemon bars.
Ingredients you will need to make this amazing Lemon Freeze Dessert
- ¾ cup corn flake crumbs
- 2 tbsp sugar
- ¼ cup unsalted butter
- 2 eggs (separated)
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- ⅓ cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp fresh lemon zest/peel
- 3 tbsp sugar
Tips to make the best Lemon Freeze Dessert
Use fresh, pasteurized eggs
Make your own corn flake crumbs using a small food processor
Wash your lemons in a water & vinegar bath before zesting. Or buy organic if you can.
When beating egg whites, make sure your beaters, and bowl have been chilled in the freezer.
Wash your lemon thoroughly. Place a sheet of waxed paper on the counter to catch the peel or zest. Using a lemon zester (a really fine grater) rub the lemon up and down, and you will see small bits of the peel come off.
It’s made of milk, but has had much of the water removed. It is then sweetened with sugar and canned. It’s very popular in dessert recipes such as our Magic Cookie Bar. The most popular brand is Borden’s Eagle Brand. I’ve found some very good store brands as well and they are usually cheaper
The addition of lemon juice in this lemon bars recipe effectively kills any bacteria that might be in the egg yolks without cooking them. We recommend using fresh pasteurized eggs.
