I am not sure where this pie recipe originally came from but my Mom used to make this when I was younger. I love Pistachios so this pie is one of my favorites. It also is very easy to make so it is perfect to make when you are in a rush and not sure what to make. This Sunday I had a family get together to celbrate my cousin’s daughter. We celbrated her high school graduation and her send off to Basic Training for the Army. It can be mistaken for Key Lime Pie due to the color so I would suggest putting a tag if bringing to a party, once people knew it was Pistachio not key lime they were more willing to give it a go.
Ingredients: 1 (12 oz) can of Crushed Pineapple ~ 1 Box of Pistachio Pudding ~ 1 (12oz) tub of Cool Whip ~ Graham Cracker pie crust
Directions: Place the crushed pineapple and the pistachio pudding powder in a mixing bowl.
Place half of the tub of the Cool Whip in the bowl and mix.
Place the mixture into the Graham Cracker pie crust form.
Place the pie in the fridge for 2-4 hours or overnight to firm. When ready to serve place the other half of the Cool Whip on top and spread over the top. Serve!
What do you think, going to try it?
Linking up with Jessica and Ashley.
Yum. We make a bunch of different versions with the pistachio pudding and cool whip.l have always heard it called watergate pie or cake or dip. and grasshopper was always mint. Isn’t it funny how different areas have different names for things. haha either way, delicious!
Yes, it is sort of a mix of the two. It doesn’t fit the traditional grasshopper pie of mint and Oreo crust but the Watergate usually has sour cream so it doesn’t fit that either. It is so funny seeing different regional names for things.
