"Ask Your Psychic Fiend" answers are coming. Meanwhile, I saw this and thought of someone.

Yeah, MooCow, this is for you.

Peep Pie

This pie requires one cookie crumb- or graham cracker crust.

1 cookie crumb pie crust
1 four-serving box gelatin (coordinate color with the color of peeps used)
1 cup boiling water
1 cup whole milk (or half-and-half/light cream)
3 cups cold, but thawed non-dairy whipped topping
2 tablespoons Curaco (sp?) or similar blue liqueur if blue peeps; a berry
liqueur if pink peeps, etc
15 (1 package of 3 boxes) Peeps
1 cup fresh blueberries or strawberries, etc for Garnish

Freeze crust while you prepare the pie filling. Pour one cup boiling water over gelatin in heat proof bowl. Stir to dissolve gelatin. Add 1 cup cold milk and liqueur. Blend well and refrigerate until gelatin has thickened, but not set firm. Fold in thawed topping to chilled gelatin mixture. Mix completely so that no streaks remain, but avoid overworking. Spoon filling into frozen crust. Snip apart each family of Peeps. Arnge in concentric circles atop pie filling. Use fresh blueberries to fill in gaps between Peeps. Refrigerate for at least three hours. Peeps refrigerated for longer
than 36 hours will begin to "weep" and ooze melted sugar. With the blue or lavender Peeps, this is a particularly disgusting sight. Serve with Blue Genie cocktail or blue Kool-aid.
