Lots of pie


The ad man that thought up this 60's ad really got a lot of bang for their clients budget. Ten recipe suggestions in one ad! The variety of colors really draws your eye to the ad too.

The ideas aren't very inspired but there sure are a lot of them. The fruit cocktail slice description is: "Put drained fruit cocktail in it, glaze with thickened syrup and it's Fruit Salad Pie." No thanks.

I didn't realize that ready made crumb pie crusts had been around for so long. The recipe I like to use with one is this:

Pina Colada Pie

2 containers (8 oz. each) pina colada yogurt

1 container (8 oz.) Cool Whip whipped topping, thawed

1 large can crushed pineapple, well drained

1 9-inch graham cracker crumb crust

Fold yogurt into whipped topping, blending well; fold in pineapple. Spoon into crust. Freeze until firm, 4 hours or overnight. Remove from freezer 30 minutes before serving and keep chilled in refrigerator.

Heavens to betsy, if I don't have time to make my own pie crust I definitely do not have time to make every slice different!

Love the ad though!

We were so fond of Cool Whip and yogurt pies, but we never made the Pina Colada Pie. I may give that one a try.
