A TASTY NO-BAKE SUMMER PIE
Have you ever tried Kool-Aid Pie? It is one of those delicious recipes that we made when I was a kid. I'm pretty sure it was a recipe on the back of a can of powdered Kool-Aid mix. Who knew that there were so many uses for Kool-Aid rather than just a drink? It is a fun ingredient to use in desserts because there are so many flavors to choose from! This is the perfect little pie recipe to cool down with this summer. So if you are looking for something a little different (but full of flavor!) then you need to make my Strawberry Kool-Aid Pie recipe!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Yes, this is delicious made with any flavor of Kool-Aid - why not try cherry, blue raspberry, lemon lime or orange!
Yes you can. You could use 5 Tablespoons of melted butter mixed with 1 Tablespoon of granulated sugar and 1 cup of cookie crumbs (graham crackers, vanilla wafers, sugar cookies, etc). Just press this mixture into a pie plate and bake it at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Allow the crust to cool before filling it.
You could use homemade whipped cream in place of the frozen whipped topping. Just whip together 1 cup of cold, heavy cream, ½ cup of confectioner’s sugar, and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract. The pie may be a softer texture but will still be yummy!
This recipe will technically work without it. If you have lemon juice you could also use that as a replacement. The slightly tart juice offsets the overall sweetness to balance out the flavors.
