Fluffy Jello Pie
Source of Recipe
Cool and light and fluffy and fruity, this is an awesome spring or summer dessert. Can be doubled and made in a 9x13 pan also.
List of Ingredients
1 pre-made graham cracker crust
1 small box of Jello (your favorite flavor)
1 6oz carton of Yoplait yogurt (in a complimentary flavor, or you can just use vanilla yogurt)
1 8 oz tub of Cool Whip
1 cup of boiling water
ice cubes and water to equal 1/2 cup
Preheat oven to 350. Brush the graham cracker crust with melted butter and bake in the preheated oven for 5-6 minutes (you can skip this step, but it makes a really nice crispy crust). Let the crust cool for 5 minutes, then pop it into the freezer to chill down thoroughly while you make the pie filling.
Whisk together the Jello and the boiling water for two minutes, til completely dissolved. Whisk in the cold/ice water. Whisk in the yogurt until thoroughly mixed. Fold in the entire tub of Cool Whip. Stash this in the fridge for about 15 minutes, until the mixture has set a little bit (you sould be able to mound it with a spoon and have it hold its shape, but it will still be "soft set").
Take the crust out of the freezer and fill it with the fluffy Jello stuff. Cover the pie and refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.
Can serve with additional Cool Whip if desired, garnish with berries or other fresh fruit, or maybe a cute little cookie perched on each slice.
Good Jello/yogurt combinations:
Strawberry (or any red) Jello w/strawberry or any berry flavor yogurt
Orange Jello w/vanilla yogurt
Lemon Jello w/lemon or vanilla yogurt
