1 1/2 C. crushed Graham cracker crumbs (or you could use cookie crumbs too..)
3 T. sugar
1/3 C. melted butter
Mix together until all of the crumbs are moistened and clumping just a bit. Place your hand inside a sandwich size plastic bag or wrap a piece of plastic wrap around your fingers. Pat the crumbs into a 9" pie plate evenly and push the crumbs up the sides to form a shell for the filling. Refrigerate for an hour. (If you prefer a baked crust you can bake for 8 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F. oven, then cool completely and proceed with the filling.)
1 can of condensed milk
1 pkg. unsweetened orange drink mix (I used Kool Aid)
1 thawed 8 Oz. tub of frozen whipped topping (I used Dream Whip)
Stir the ingredients until they are totally incorporated and spoon into chilled crumb pie shell, spreading evenly. Chill until serving time. Serve as is or top with an additional dollop of sweetened whipped topping or sweetened whipped cream. Yield 6-8 servings.
I would have been shocked if this were not a hit at my house and I hope it will be a hit at your house too. You may use any flavor powdered drink mix you like. Thus there are a lot of variations to be tried......lemonade pie, pineapple cream pie, cherry cream, strawberry cream, and the list goes on.
PS: Our bunch prefers cake to pie in general but they did all like this a lot.
