Lemon Parfait Pie

This pie is perfect to enjoy in the summertime, but it also serves as a lovely reminder of warmer weather as the East Coast begins to cool down for the season.

The tart and refreshing lemon zing mixed with ice cream on a graham cracker crust makes such a wonderful treat you might just opt to eat dessert first and who could blame you.

While the recipe itself is easy - it does require a little extra time, since it has to be frozen in sections.  But rest assured it will be worth the wait!

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

3/4 cup finely chopped pecans ( note: If there are any nut allergies, the pecans can be left out)

1/4 cup sugar

2 cups lemon curd

2 tablespoons lemon juice
