Reminds me of the commercial where the customer orders a piece of pie and the waitress asks, "oil or cream". Here's a chance for Andy to introduce SO's sister to something better.

There is oil in the peanut butter and oil in the Cool Whip. I can hear Andy's arteries hardening.

I like Cool Whip, especially the one made with real cream. Thinking I may try this recipe as is!

I finally have a title of distinction! Food Snob. Thank you Dawg.

We'll add that to your profile, Addie!

Thinking. I've frozen some desserts with real whipped cream on top, and some with whipped cream in the cake layers, they survived intact, no weeping or breakage. So I think it should be OK as a sub for Cool Whip. You have my blessing.

Yeah, I'm a food snob. I want my food to be made of food.

Andy, please think about this. Is mentioning this really warrant acting on it? Can't you talk about your favorite desserts that you like to make? Desserts that don't use Cool Whip?

Cream cheese, peanut butter and Cool Whip. Blend the cream cheese and peanut butter then fold in the cool whip and put it into a graham cracker crust and freeze. There are variations on how you can decorate the top.

My question is this: If I make whipped cream with powdered sugar and vanilla as a substitute for Cool Whip and fold that into the pie, will it hold up or break down and turn watery?
Add gelatin to the whiped cream!

Andy, I would take a lesson from Tiramisu and replace the Cool Whip with a mixture of whipped cream and mascarpone. Whip the cream and fold in the mascarpone. I guarantee it won't break.

Edit: in fact, here is a recipe that does just that...

By george, I think S&P has the answer! Good job. I can't stand CW either.

I see Steve has a great idea too!
