Creamy Watermelon Pie?

by Sherry Riter in Cooking  ,Dessert,Food,Fruit,Recipe

I made dessert from a new recipe called Creamy Watermelon Pie which I adapted from a blog called Screwed Up Texan Recipes.

I wanted it to be lighter, so I adapted some of the ingredients.




The recipe goes something like this…

    2 c. diced watermelon
    1 c. sugar
    1 pkg. cream cheese
    2 c. Cool Whip whipped topping
    3 drops red food coloring
    1 prepared graham cracker crust

Whip sugar, cream cheese, Cool Whip and red food coloring together until totally smooth and fluffy.

Fold in diced watermelon by hand.

Spoon mixture into prepared graham cracker crust.

Chill for one hour minimum to firm the pie.

My family was skeptical, but they loved it! The pie was cool, refreshing and VERY light!

Give it a try and approach it with an open mind.

You may be surprised and love it too!
