No Bake Berry and Honey Pie

Featured

The only other pie I've ever made was the brownie, cookie pie and I know it isn't much of a pie, but I decided to give pie making another go.  This recipe has only 4 ingredients and it is really easy to prepare so the only excuse not to make it, is if you don't like fruit or honey.

* Note: You need to eat this pie the day you make it or within two days, otherwise the Graham cracker crust will get too soggy and the honey will separate from it.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
Ingredients:
  • Graham Crackers (9)
  • Honey (about 6 tablespoons)
  • Cool Whip (half of the container)
  • Mixed Berries (I used frozen and about 2 cups)

Supplies:
  • Pie Pan
  • Magic Bullet (or Blender)
  • Bowl and Smashing tool (or Food Processor)

Step 2: Crush your Crackers

Take your Graham Crackers and break them up into a bowl.  Now just keep smashing them until they are really fine.  If you have a food processor, you can use that.  It takes a while to do by hand, but it is kind of fun.  Be careful when you start smashing them because they are going to want to fly out of the bowl.  As the bits get smaller, they stay in the bowl better.

I started with a few crackers and then poured it into the pie pan as I went to see how many I would need.  In the end, a pack of 9 seemed to be a good amount, but you could probably add in 2 more and have a good side crust going.

Now add your honey.  You want enough so that there is no Graham Cracker dust.  It took me about 6 tablespoons.  (I was hoping it would be something cool like 3.14 tablespoons, but I wanted it honeyer.)  You want it to be able to clump up as in the last picture.

I was wondering if you could freeze it for later as Cool Whip is kept in the freezer, or are the berries too juicy for the cool whip to hold up for that long?

I am not sure. It could be worth a try, but fresher will always be best :)

We will give this a try--it's great that it is dairy free (cool whip doesn't actually have any cream in it :-)) so my son who is allergic to milk can have it. Thanks for sharing and good luck on the contest!

Let me know how it goes! It's fun to make and eat. Remember to eat it all the day you make it or in the next day (or maybe two) for best results!

This looks delish and sooo easy!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  ashbegash2 years ago
It is! Smashing the crackers took the longest and I took my time, so you can whip this together pretty quick.

That looks lovely! Should the berries be thawed first? If so, does the liquid need to be removed also?
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  canucksgirl2 years ago
I went right from the freezer to the magic bullet. You could probably thaw them, but, yes, I think you would need to strain them because otherwise the whipped cream will lose it's consistency. (Those berries in the bowl are frozen, I just ran some water over them because it made them look nicer.)
Looks lovely and light! I think i shall make this for Mother's Day! :) Thank you for sharing!
Thank you! It is very light. And I think I used organic frozen berries.
