Orange Dream Pie

With Thanksgiving and Christmas I'm sharing one of our favorite holiday recipes.  My husband's not really in to pies, but he loves---LOVES this one!  Anytime we have to bring a dish to any type of get together, this is what he requests. (And lucky for me this is one of the easiest recipes I have!)  If you like Dreamsicles in the summer time, you'll love this pie!

Don't forget I'm hosting Sweet Thursday this week.  Stop by and link up your holiday and family favorite recipes!

Recipe for Orange Dream Pie:

1 graham cracker crust
2/3 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) orange gelatin
1 package (8 oz) Cream Cheese
1 tub (8 oz) Whipped Topping

Directions:  Heat water to boiling. Pour into a bowl.  Add gelatin mix. Stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Cool for 5 minutes.   Pour into blender. (You must use a blender.  A mixer will cause mixture to splatter.) Place softened cream cheese in blender, and blend well.  Pour into large bowl.  Slowly add whipped topping. Stir together well. Pour into pie crust.  Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Tip:  This is great with other flavors as well!  Below is a pic of the pie I made using strawberry gelatin.  In the future I'm going to try lemon and lime too, and I think cherry would also be a good choice!

I'm linking up this week at the Love the Pie Party  at Tidy Mom and these linky parties.
