Kiwi Summer Limeade Pie

I got this recipe from the May/June 2011 issue of Midwest Living.  It is a rich pie, so you want to cut pieces small. {print recipe}

Kiwi Summer Limeade Pie

1 9 inch baked pie shell

6 Tablespoons coarsely chopped macadamia nuts (I only used about 3)

6 ounces frozen limeade concentrate, thawed

1 box instant vanilla pudding (4 servings size)

2 packages cream cheese, softened (8 ounces each)

3/4 cup powdered sugar

3 medium kiwifruit, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, and sliced

1 6 ounce carton lime yogurt

1 1/2 cups frozen Cool Whip

Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the macadamia nuts in the bottom of the pie shell.  In a small bowl, whisk together the limeade concentrate and vanilla pudding.  Set aside.

In another bowl, beat the cream cheese for about 30 seconds with your mixture.  Beat in the powdered sugar and then the pudding and limeade mixture.  Reserve 3/4 of a cup and carefully spread the rest in the pie shell.

First layer

Top this layer with two of the kiwis.

Mix yogurt into the reserved cream cheese mixture until combined.  Fold in the Cool Whip.  Spoon over the kiwis.  Garnish with the remaining kiwi and macadamia nuts.
