Octopus Pie!



I have missed graham cracker crust for years! Today for April Fools Day I really wanted to make a version of my “worm pie.”

For a sweet dessert pie crust use 10 Pamela’s Lemon Shortbread Cookies. (I found them at Walmart. I have also seen them at health food stores.) In a bowl, crush them well with a large spoon. Add 2 Tbsp. sugar, pour in ¼ cup melted butter, whisk then push with a spoon into a pie crust.

For an easy pie recipe, stir ¼ cup boiling water into a small pkg. lime Jell-O. Add a lime yogurt plus a small tub of Cool Whip. Whisk together, then add to piecrust and chill in fridge. You can do this with any flavor of Jell-O/yogurt combination.

I have traditionally put gummy worms in my pie, but could only find octopus gummies this year.

Happy April Fools Day!
