Costco Makeover: Raspberry Key Lime Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 Costco Key Lime Pie cold (or any store bought or homemade pie)
  • 3/4 C. sugar
  • 1 C. raspberries
  • 3 tsp. gelatin unflavored or raspberry or strawberry (jello powder)
  • more fresh berries for decoration

Instructions

  1. 1. Prep your Costco pie by scraping off the center mound of whipped cream. These pies sometimes look different from store to store so make adjustments as needed. (For example, not all pies come with the graham cracker crumbs on the whipped cream.)
  2. 2. Pop the pie in the freezer until filling is done.
  3. 3. Raspberry layer: Cook the sugar and the raspberries on the stove top on medium heat for about 9 minutes. Stir constantly.
  4. 4. Strain out seeds.
  5. 5. Stir in gelatin and let cool for a few minutes.
  6. 6. Once the filling is only warm (not hot) to the touch, pour onto the pie.
  7. 7. Rim the edge with fresh berries is desired and pop back into the freezer to set. (I served mine right from the freezer, the pie doesn't ever get hard, just nice and firm and cold. Perfect for a bbq!)
