Gimmee Some Damn PIE


As much as I love the Dutch (and I KNOW they love me right back, kiss-kiss-kiss) we really do need to turn the focus back to the U.S., as we can’t ignore the Attention Whore of the Universe on her birthday, now can we? I know around the world, you’re saying to yourself, “what can I make for my 4th of July celebration picnic that practically screams AMERICA?”
Pie of the Month comes to the rescue with the ideal recipe, which I also remember from the very excellent Tacky Living. What says America more than highly processed artificially flavored candy that preys upon our freshness-anxiety, mixed into a fattening, sugar-infested mess, on which we can dollop a half-tub of Cool Whip?

Presenting....TicTac™ Pie.

1 graham cracker pie crust
Two 8 oz packages of cream cheese – softened
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
4 boxes of orange TicTac™ candies

Preheat oven to 350. Beat cream cheese slightly. Add eggs, sugar, vanilla, and lemon peel. Beat the mixture until it is light and fluffy. Add TicTac™ candies and mix lightly. Pour into crust. Bake until firm, about 25 minutes. Sprinkle TicTac™ candies over the pie and allow it to cool. Refrigerate at least 8 hours.

And if you’re a REAL American....Serves 1.
