Creamy Lemonade Cups

I made this new recipe this weekend and it was really yummy! I always ask David to rate new recipes on a scale from 1-10. 1 being never make it again and 10 being it is a new favorite! He gave it a 7.5. One thing I'd improve next time is to make it a little farther ahead - it is better when fully chilled! Enjoy!

1 1/4 c. graham cracker crumbs (about 20 squares)
1/4 c. butter or margarine, melted
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 c. finely chopped nuts
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
3/4 c. lemonade concentrate
1 carton (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed

In a bowl, combine the crumbs, butter and sugar. Stir in the nuts. Set aside 1/4 c. for topping; press the remaining mixture onto the bottom of eight dessert dishes. In another bowl, combine the milk and lemonade concentrate; fold in the whipped topping. Spoon into prepared dishes. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Chill until serving. Yield: 8 servings.

Note: I did not have any lemonade concentrate, so substituted 1/2 c. lemon juice and 1/4 c. sugar mixture. It was yummy!
