PostSubject: It's hot in Texas, so I made a yummy frozen Strawberry Margarita Pie (tequila optional)   Sun Jun 05, 2011 3:08 pm

So we are already in triple digits down here.....so when I had friends over last night, I made a couple of these pies....thought I'd share the recipe. It's really easy and nice when it's hot outside...no cooking! Just pop the leftover pie back in the freezer...keeps for a long time! Yummy!

Strawberry Margarita Pie

3 TBSP butter
2 TBSP honey
1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
3 cups frozen strawberry yogurt, softened
1 1/2 cups whipped topping (lite ok)
2 tsp. grated lime peel, divided (one small lime)
1 pkg. (16 oz.) strawberries in syrup, thawed (I used the frozen strawberries w/ Splenda)
1 TBSP fresh lime juice (one lime....same one you used for peel...lol.)
1 TBSP Tequila (opt.)

Combine butter and honey and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Combine with crushed pretzels in medium bowl. Stir to coat. Press onto bottom and side of 9 inch pie plate and freeze for 30 minutes or until firm.

Combine frozen yogurt, whipped topping and 1 tsp. lime peel and gently mix well. Pour into prepared pretzel crust and smooth out. Freeze two hours or until firm.

Combine strawberries, lime juice and remaining 1 tsp. lime peel in small bowl and stir to blend. Keep in fridge til ready to serve.

Add tequila if desired just before serving. Top pie slices with strawberry mixture.

PostSubject: Two more hot weather easy dessert......just in time for the Fourth!   Sun Jun 26, 2011 1:27 pm

I got a new cookbook called Incredibly Easy Desserts some time ago and have tried two hot weather ones that were really good I thought I'd share. I got the Strawberry Margarita Pie I posted about earlier from the same book. These would be really good for upcoming Fourth celebrations! chef chef2

Easy Key Lime Pie
2 8oz. containers of whipped topping
1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened (low fat ok)
1 pkg. 4 serving size lime flavored gelatin
1 6 oz. size graham cracker crust
Thinly sliced lime for garnish (opt.)

Beat two thirds of whipped topping, cream cheese and gelatin powder in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth.
Spoon into pie crust and top with remaining one third of whipped topping. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with lime slice if desired.


Peach Cream Cake
1 10 oz. loaf angel food cake (easier to slice if frozen or use electric knife)
1 14 oz. can Eagle Brand Milk (fat free ok….don’t use evaporated milk)
1 cup cold water
1 tsp. almond extract
1 4 serving size pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups whipped cream or whipped topping (I use low fat Cool Whip)
4 cups sliced fresh peaches (about 2 lbs.)

Cut cake into ¼ inch slices. Arrange half of slices on bottom of ungreased 9 x 13 pan.

In large bowl, combine Eagle Brand milk, water, and almond extract. Add pudding mix and beat well. Chill for 5 minutes

Fold whipped cream/topping into pudding. Spread half of mixture over cake slices and arrange half of the peach slices on top of pudding layer. Repeat layers of cake, pudding, and peach slices.

Chill 4 hours or until set. Cut into squares to serve and store leftovers covered in fridge.

Low Fat!


OK. If you insist. I do use low fat whenever I can in recipes. And these do sound soooooo good. I plan to try the peach one for sure. And most likely the key lime pie too!

Thanks for sharing.

I don't think there will be any leftovers though! lol! lol!

Clafouti

1/2 cup each milk, cottage cheese (or ricotta cheese), white sugar, flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 lg. eggs
1 1/2 cups rhubarb cut in 1" bits (cooked or frozen & thawed - in other words, soft)
1 cup strawberries

Oven at 425.

In a food processor or blender, combine everything except the fruits. Process until smooth.

Spread the fruit evenly over the bottom of an 8" deep-dish pie plate (or 8" square baking pan). Pour batter evenly over the top of fruit.

Bake until puffed and golden brown, 30-35 minutes. Serve warm, at room temperature or cold.

If you don't have rhubarb, you can use any fruit mixture - but I'm all for holding out for the rhubarb!

You can make this up to 2 days ahead, keeping it refrigerated, well wrapped. Serve cold. This does not reheat well.

*note - this is not a particularly pretty dessert, but it's tasty!
Oh, and it's CLOW-foo-TEE.

It sounds yummy, I can see the ingredients and how they would interact, thanks for sharing, might have to try this one! I have rhubarb aplenty , I grow it under fruit trees all along one side of the vege garden as a wind break for seedlings and the leaves get used for a spray to kill pear slug on the fruit trees above it. I have about 15 clumps going, anyone want some yum

Laura and I just mixed up a volcano pudding aka steamed golden syrup pudding. When we flip it up all the golden lava (golden syrup) will pour down the cake like mountain! What we do in the name of science!!

Yes Lyles is the brand in the states, it what I use to make anzac cookies too, the oat ones that are so delicous and easy to make. I found a pic online so anyone else interested can see



and I forgot to take a photo of the pudding so found one online



laura had hers with cream, DH and I had cream on ours, it was yummy. You can make them with jam/jelly/preserves instead of golden syrup and some people make them with sauces and such too
