                        Raspberry Lemon Ice Box Pie

Use a little, use a lot! Use up to 8oz of jam for a fruitier flavor and make this easy peasy by using frozen whipped topping instead of making whipped cream. 

1 cup whipping cream

1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened

1/2c Potlicker marmalade or jam

½ tsp lemon extract (optional)

1 9” prepared pie crust

In a medium mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the cream into stiff peaks.

In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese on medium speed until smooth, add marmalade and lemon extract, beat until combined. Use a rubber spatula to fold whipped cream into the mix.

Pour marmalade/jam cream into pie shell and freeze for at least 1 hour. Garnish with fresh fruit. Serve cold, store in the refrigerator or freezer.

Jammy Margarita

We love shaking jams into cocktails. Perhaps our favorite is a margarita made with Strawberry Chipotle Jam. It's fruity, tart, and finishes with a mild smoky spice. If strawberry isn’t your jam, try this technique with Raspberry Smoked Maple, Cucumber Jalapeno, or Pineapple Habanero for an extra kick. I make most of my cocktails in [...]
