Easy as Pie

I got this recipe from a friend of mine.  It originally uses fresh strawberries and it tastes incredible that way.  It also tastes incredible using peaches.  I have heard that this is a weight watchers recipe.  I don't care it tastes great and it's super easy.

You will need:

1 Graham Cracker crust
1 bag of frozen raspberries
1 box of Cook N' Serve Sugar Free Vanilla Jello pudding
1 box of Sugar Free Raspberry Jello
2 1/4 cups of water

Of course if you use strawberries use strawberry Jello.

First up:  Pour the water in the pan and dump both boxes of Jello in.

Beautiful, right?  Next, turn on the burner to medium and start stirring.  I usually start with a whisk to mix in the Jello better then switch to a silicone spatula to get into the corners better.

You basically cook this kind of like you are scrambling eggs. Stir it to keep the Jello from sticking to the sides.  When the mixture starts to bubble it is ready!   In between stirs you should fill your pie crust with fruit.

I didn't have to use all of the raspberries.  You want to be able to cover the fruit with the Jello completely.  You can use your extra fruit for garnish or a smoothie or whatever.

When the Jello starts to bubble take it off the burner.  It seriously has to cool.  By cool I mean when you stir it, steam doesn't come out of it.  This is very, very important.  If your Jello doesn't cool it can dissolve your pie crust.  So when your Jello stops steaming just pour it on top of the fruit.

Stick that pie in the refrigerator for it to finish cooling and it will be ready to eat.  I love making this pie for company because when you serve it it doesn't all fall apart on you and start oozing everywhere.

You should have no guilt eating this dessert.
