I needed are dessert the other night and came up with this recipe. It got a "thumbs-up" the picky eater here.
Orange Creme Pie
1 box Orange Jello
2 packages ( 8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup 2% milk
1 tub Cool Whip
1 Tbsp vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Pure Orange Extract
1 'Nilla-Wafer pie crust
Using a mixer, cream together until very smooth the cream cheese, sugar, cream, milk, and the extracts.
Add in the orange jello and mix until well combined.
Using a large metal spoon or rubber/silicon spatula fold in the cool whip, working in 1/2 the tub at a time.
Pour the mixture into the pie crust and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Overnight is better.
Slice and serve with whipped topping.
The pie will be very high and you will need to keep it in a large, lidded container (this is the voice of experience talking). That plastic lid that comes with the crust will not work.
