More making me sad, but I want to try to make the no-bake peanut butter pie (well, the filling anyway, I'm not a crust fan)
the first 4 recipes I found online involved Cool Whip or Reddi Whip
That's one of my huge frustrations too. Ooh, that cake looks amazing! But it uses cake mix. Or every recipe has cream of soup.
I totally get the frustration of having a recipe that calls for something that's already processed (...like canned/packaged/pre-made; not like flour). I also prefer recipes that call for "whole food" ingredients.
However, I have always just figured that Reddi Whip was shelf-stable whipped cream, and substitute homemade whipped cream instead. [Cool Whip, to be sure, is a concoction all its own.]
