Pinkie Pie

A while back I was trying to rack my brain for fandom recipes and I knew I had to come up with a pie to be named after my favourite pony - Pinkie Pie! When I was browsing Pinterest and came across a pink lemonade pie, I knew that was going to be my 'Pinkie Pie'. Because honestly, pink lemonade tastes like there's a party in my mouth! I followed closely to this recipe I found here. I made my crust slightly different and mine definitely came out more pink but either way, it's a great recipe!



Pinkie Pie


Crust:
1 1/4 cups of honey graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup of melted butter or margarine

Filling:
6 oz. can of pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
8 oz. container of Cool Whip, plus more for topping
Red food colouring (optional)


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix graham cracker crumbs and melted butter in a 9" pie plate. Press the mixture firmly to the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate. Bake crust for 7 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and cool completely.

Whisk together pink lemonade and sweetened condensed milk in a bowl until combined. 

Gently fold in Cool Whip. I added a couple of drops of red food colouring to make the mixture more pink, but it stayed a very pale colour and I didn't want to overload the filling with dye so I just left it.

Spread filling evenly in cooled crust and freeze until solid. When serving, top each piece with more Cool Whip.

This is the colour of it once mixed:

Once mixed, it took away a lot of the pink colour:

Let's pretend this picture is in focus! Guests were showing up so I had to take a quick picture after it was frozen so I could serve it soon after!

This pie is delicious! I'm a huge fan of pink lemonade and this is so perfect and tart! I plan on making variations of this pie with frozen lemonade and limeade! I highly recommend giving this recipe a try!
