USING WHAT IS ON HAND....SUMMER PIE........


I really don't make many pies....and I am not so sure you could really classify this as one...but here is something I whipped up from items in my fridge that I wanted to use up.


Fat free cool whip
Reduced fat sour cream
Peaches or strawberries if you have them on hand
and crumbs from the bottom of the cookie jar


Smash crumbs in a baggie......
Mis sour cream and cool whip together....to taste....as sweet....or not so sweet as you desire




Spread crumbs in the bottom of your pie plate
cover with whatever fruit you have chosen
(I had to use peaches because ...... I had them on hand.....and my soul mate cannot eat strawberries)
Cover the whole thing with cool whip/sour cream mixture......

Then top with some of the remaining cookie crumb mixture.


I might sprinkle some nuts on top before I serve this.....and I'm not sure if it will be more like a pudding rather than an actual piece of pie....but I think it will be yummy....and made completely from things in my fridge that I needed to use...and it should not be very high in calories since I used "skinny" everything except for the cookie crumbs.

Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. It looks delicious. Something I definitely have to try...that is if I don't eat the container of cool whip first. I have a habit of doing that. One spoonful turns into two, and before you know it....

  4. oh yummy! reminds me of a show that I like where a chef knocks on peoples doors and with whatever they had on hand was made into a gourmet meal. I love those challenges...some really wonderful things can come of them...like this one! I'd have some too and I'm not a dessert person myself. :D
