Every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas time there is one type of pie that my family all requests...Cream Pies! Years ago I learned of the best way to make them and it's so simple anyone can do it.
To make the cream pie:
1 graham cracker crust (you can use normal crust as well, this is just a preference)
1 large box of pudding- the flavor you want the cream pie to be.
1 container of cool whip topping
Follow the directions on the pudding box to make for PIE (it calls for less milk). Once the pudding is mixed up fold all but a spoon full of the cool whip into the pudding.
Pour into your pie crust and then top with the remaining cool whip.
For chocolate cream- shave some chocolate on top
For Banana cream- serve with fresh banana's (but don't put them on until right before serving so they don't go brown)
For Coconut cream- use vanilla pudding, add 1/2 t. coconut extract and 1 cup of coconut to the pudding. Sprinkle some toasted coconut on top
These pies are usually the first to be eaten! Enjoy!
