Cooking the Books: Lemonade Pie from Editor Mallory Braus

February 22, 2011

Sometimes you just want a simple, easy, delicious dessert that you can whip up. Freelance editor Mallory Braus shared this one with the Carina Press editors recently.

I bestow upon you the fabulous recipe for Lemonade Pie:

1- graham cracker crust
1- 8oz container of lowfat coolwhip
1- 0.23 oz packet of lemon or lime koolaid
A?- 14oz sweetened lowfat/nofat condensed milk

Mix coolwhip/koolaid/condensed milk together until smooth and blended. Pour mixture into the graham cracker crust. Put in freezer overnight. Then enjoy!

It’s quick to make, delish, and best of all, it’s low fat/low calorie. A slice is about 2 points on the weight watchers scalea??

Mallory has always had a passion for reading romance. But she never considered that the books she loved could lead to a future career. Until one fateful day she was offered an internship with a fabulous literary agent. A position as reader for a romance editor at St. Martina??s Press soon followed. She graduated from UCLA in 2009 with a BA in English. After a brief stay in New York, in which it was discovered that city life did not agree with her, she returned to California and feels so blessed to have found a home with Carina Press and a job that lets her work with her one true lovea??romance.

When shea??s not editing, Mallory also works part-time as a PR Associate for authors. You can follow her on Twitter @MalloryCates
