1 tbsp water
1 pkg lemonade unsweetened Kool-Aid style drink mix
1 tbsp frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2 pkgs (3-oz each)cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
1 Graham cracker pie crust
2 tbsps seedless raspberry jam, warmed; optional garnish
thin lemon slices, optional garnish
In a small mixing bowl, combine the water and the lemonade soft drink mix until the mix is totally dissolved. Stir in the lemonade concentrate. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and the soft drink mixture until fluffy. Fold in the whipped cream. Spread the mixture into the Graham cracker crust. Chill for at least an hour until set before cutting. If desired, use the raspberry jam to drizzle on the serving plates before placing the pieces of pie on the plates. Top each slice with a thinly sliced lemon slice that has been slit to twist into a decorative design and add a couple of mint leaves if desired.
