Halloweenish Pie


Did you know that monday was pie day? Like the nerd kind of pie? News flash... in case you didn't know it... I'm part nerd. It's true, and I'm proud of it!! I fly my nerd flag high! And John pretends he doesn't know me... silly man. Well speaking of pie, I recently found out John likes jello pies... really?? Seriously would have NEVER guessed that one. So I went and made him an orange creamcicle pie, kinda looks like halloween... but that's ok :) I had bought a graham cracker crust and when he saw it he looked all sad

"what's wrong?? isn't a jello pie in a graham crust??"
"well it's supposed to be a chocolate one"
"really?"
"yeah.. it's ok though i'll still eat it" (looking even more pitiful)
"nah another trip to the store will solve this"

So a day later and chocolate crust in hand (the 0 trans fat variety... careful some of these things are FILLED with them) I made him his pie... and the man was VERY happy.

So easy it seems silly to write it out.


Jello Pie
1 package sugar free jello
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water
8 oz cool whip
CHOCOLATE graham or oreo cookie pie crust

Make jello according to package, let set for an hour in the refrigerator.

Take jello out and blend in 8 oz fat free cool whip. Flop it into the crust and stick it back in the refrigerator. Serve cold about 4 hours later.

That looks like something my husband would like! Easy too!

I love this post and I love the bright orange color of that filling against the dark crust. How fun!!

That's a thing of beauty! Especially because it's Halloweeny. :) Sounds delish too.

You seasonal rebel you. Halloweenish pie in March...I love it!

Sometimes the simple recipes are the ones we overlook and forget about. I've had something very similar to this before and remember liking it very much!

Wish I woulda known it was pie day--but I guess I celebrated a bit early because Sunday I made my Choc PB Cheesecake Pie--heaven!

What a great pie. I have yet to try to make any pies at all, but this looks like a great place to start!

I'm making a pumpkin pie later this week for my work's belated pi day pie contest. (I saved a can of pumpkin for just such an occasion.)
I love being a nerd.
