Happy St. Patrick's Day! Cookin' Corner: "Angela's Limeade Pie"
"A light heart lives long." -Irish proverb
Happy St. Patricks Day! Today I'm serving up a slice of Irish inspiration with my recipe for a fun and easy green dessert.
"Angela’s Limeade Pie"
2/3 cup boiling water
1 package lime flavored gelatin mix (sugar free lime gelatin works great)
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup ice cubes
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed (Cool Whip offers a Sugar Free whipped topping)
¼ cup lime zest (shredded from lime peel is my pick over bottled zest)
1 (8 inch) prepared reduced fat graham cracker crust
Bring water to a boil in saucepan. Pour boiling water into mixing bowl, gradually add in dry gelatin, stirring at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add cold water, then ice to mixture. Stir well. Remove remaining ice from mixture. Gradually stir in whipped topping with wire whisk until smooth. Add in lime zest and stir well. Refrigerate 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture is thick. Spoon filling into crust. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight before serving. Enjoy!
"May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, May the rains fall soft upon your fields, And, until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand." - Irish blessing
