♥ Watermelon Pie.♥

My post yesterday was all about WATERMELON and MEMORIES
and I told you about a 
CREAMY WATERMELON PIE recipe I saw in THE COUNTRY DOOR catalog.
I couldn't wait to try it....
I made it today and may I just say...
O HONEY
So light and fluffy and......PINK.
It's one of those "get outa town" tastes...at least for me.
Watermelon just doesn't seem to "go" in a PIE but, it is pretty darn good.
......just different.
If you like WATERMELON, you will absolutely LUV this pie.
Very easy to make...
I used a store-bought GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST and it was delicious.
Mr. Sweet especially likes WATERMELON so he is lovin' this pie.
Strawberries with Strawberry gelatin would be
OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. good, too.
Strawberries being MY  favorite....yep, I'm making it next.
It sure made a  PRETTY pie....

Creamy Watermelon Pie

1 pkg. watermelon gelatin
1/4 c. boiling water
12-oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 c. watermelon, seeded & cubed
1 graham cracker crust

In a large bowl, dissolve the gelatin in boiling water. Cool the mixture to room temperature. Whisk in the whipped topping and fold in the cubed watermelon. Spoon mixture into crust. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.

Bj, This looks so interesting. I am with you, I probably would go for the same recipe except using strawberries.

Bj, I am learning about different things that you can do with watermelon. Maybe that was what I should have told them I wanted for my birthday today at work. We had cake to go with our cheeseburgers and hotdogs. I watch a grilling contest and they grilled watermelon on the grill. I like pineapple that way. Have a great weekend. Your Missouri Friend

I love me some watermelon but I think I will stick to the juicy, drip down you face way of eating it.

Susie Jefferson said...

I have to say a pie didn't wound very nice at all, but I trust you... I may try, or just stick with it au naturel or in ice cream. But it does sound intriguing - and now I'm thinking cheesecake? Trifle?

Happy Pink Saturday!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Such a fun color and it sure sounds good-enjoy:@)

Debbie said...

I love watermelon, plus I like anything that is pink and fluffy looking so I would love it I'm sure. The husband doesn't like watermelon so much, though, so I would end up eating the whole pie myself.

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

Never heard of Watermellon Pie! Another first, for this Olden Gal.

And who told me? Why Sweet BJ, of course! :-)

Oh and Hon, in regard to my using all alllll-white-blog-look, I can't really pull it off, like you do. You can make those always different and cute and sassy HEADERS. I can't. So an all-white-blog-look is just blahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, for me. -pout-

But I did switch back to Picture Window Template and can get some softly pretty backgrounds again. :-)

The cubes of watermelon are a twist. Sounds intriguing and looks so gorgeous and fluffy.

Beverly said...

Um Yum! I want a slice. Pink, Pretty and Delicious. What more could a girl want?

Happy Pink Saturday, BJ.

Theresa said...

Gotta try this one... is there any left for me? I think I would love the strawberry also:) Have a blessed day dear BJ, HUGS!

Cranberry Morning said...

That looks absolutely luscious! And the photos are so gorgeous and summery! I want to hang on to summer as long as possible. We're starting to feel a bit of fall in the air. :-(
