Icebox pies, with fillings that are chilled instead of baked, are perfect for warm weather.

amy_wong makes mango cream pie by combining whipped cream, softened cream cheese, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and mango purée, pouring this mixture into a crumb crust coated with a thin layer of white chocolate, then chilling; she gets the best results by using Alphonso mango pulp from an Indian grocery store.

jsaimd says this lime mousse cake in a gingersnap crust is a big hit, and alkapal thinks this lemon icebox pie is just right for late summer.

amy_wong also likes the chocolate peanut butter mousse tart from The Pie and Pastry Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum, which she says “is easy to make and delicious at the same time.”
