A Tasty Dessert from the Stockpile

If you've been reading this blog for the past couple of weeks, you know that my family is on a Grocery Free Challenge.

I wanted to see how long we could go cooking and eating exclusively from our stockpile. Trips to the grocery store aren't allowed, except to pick up milk, produce, bread and sodas, which we can't seem to stockpile.

This past weekend, I had a hankering for something sweet and decided to mix up a dessert from ingredients I had on hand. I wanted to use one of the cans of sweetened condensed milk that I had on hand because, quite honestly, I wanted to scrape the empty can and eat the leftovers.

I whipped up a tasty lemon pie, using 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, 1/3 cup of fresh lemon juice, a can of sweetened condensed milk and a prepared graham cracker crust.

A few seconds in the KitchenAid, followed by a half-hour in the fridge and we had a tasty dessert.

Do you have any quick and tasty desserts that will satisfy a sweet tooth without requiring a trip to the grocery store? If so, please comment and post a link.
