Springtime Treats

I love spring, and therefore I love springtime food! Two of my favorite ingredients for spring and summer dishes are lemons & limes, so I decided to post one of my favorite warm weather desserts called Lemonade Stand Pie.
Ingredients: 1/3 c. lemonade drink mix
1/2 c. cold water
2 c. vanilla ice cream, softened
8 oz. whipping cream
1 graham cracker pie crust
Mix lemonade and water; stir until dissolved. Add ice cream. Beat with mixer on low until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Freeze, if necessary, until mixture is thick enough to mound. Spoon into crust. Freeze at least 4 hrs. until firm. Remove from freezer 15 min. before serving.
Great for barbecues!

Easiest Pumpkin Cookies Ever!

Okay, so Somer's chastisement inspired me to send a recipe:
These cookies are the easiest ones to make, and are great for last-minute desserts.  
Ingredients: 1 spice cake mix, 15 oz can pumpkin, chocolate chips
Mix cake mix and pumpkin; add chocolate chips.  That's it.  Then, bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.  Let cool on pan for a few minutes before cooling on wire rack.  
These cookies are really soft, and pretty yummy, especially considering 3 ingredients!!  Try 'em!

I don't have a great recipe to post yet, but I was wondering if you had a monkey bread recipe that you like? I have a couple, but have yet to find one that is to die for.
