Quick & Easy (Almost Any Flavor) Pie

I haven't posted a recipe to my blog before, so this is a first! But I am very excited to share this recipe with you---especially for you busy, on a budget families, like mine!

Quick & Easy (Almost Any Flavor) Pie!

1 Ready Made Crust---I used Shortbread
1- 3oz pkg of Jello, Flavor of your choice---I used store brand Strawberry
1/4 cup water
1- 8oz tub of Cool Whip (I recommend Fat Free)

Bring the water to a boil; Quickly mix the gelatin powder thoroughly in the water until dissolved
In a medium bowl, mix gelatin liquid with Cool Whip completely.
Pour into pie crust, cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Garnish with fresh fruit before serving.

I literally spent maybe $4 on this pie: $0.88 Cool Whip, $1.89 Pie Crust, $0.39 Jello Mix! The strawberries I already had in my refrigerator as snacks for the kids!
Super cheap pie recipe! Super easy to make!

Below is a photo of the pie that I made today, which was a complete hit with my hubby and kids!
Next time as an added touch I will put cool whip on top with the fruit before I serve it!

I hope that this recipe is a blessing to someone today! 

Hebrews 13:16
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
