Technically, these two posts were baked yesterday so that there was a new recipe each week but we couldn’t eat them until today. Besides, I was stuck in bed all week with the flu and wasn’t allowed anywhere near the kitchen, which seems reasonable. It was quite the bummer since I did have a few things I wanted to try. I guess I’ll have to make up for it this next week.
This first post is the kool-aid pie that has been floating around Pinterest and probably a few other sites and while I was skeptical at first, I was proven very, very wrong. It’s a delightful, zippy pie and I’m really looking forward to making this in the summer when baking can get a bit irritating what with the heat and all. Plus, it tasted like those push-up popsicles I had as a kid (I made the orange flavor) and that’s just a nice treat.
It’s extremely easy to make. All you need to do is combine a package of koolaid, whatever flavor you want, with a can of condensed milk (a 14oz to be exact) and a small tub of cool-whip, which I tend to favor in the fat-free, ‘lite’ version just to make myself feel a bit better about it all. Add to that a homemade graham cracker crust and you got a yummy, colorful dessert.
It does need to set for about three hours before eating and is actually really good fresh from the frig with a bit of cool-whip on top or some fruit. If you have kids, give this one a go, or if you just like something creamy, rich and almost ok for you, make this. I certainly will… cause I always have koolaid on hand and the other two ingredients aren’t too bad on the wallet.
