PIE! ~5 minutes, 5 ingredients~

This recipe will create a pie in almost any flavor
 in about 5 minutes!
I usually make this pie with chocolate pudding, but it's fantastic with lemon, vanilla, and butterscotch flavors as well!  The lemon and vanilla flavors are soooo good with fresh fruit on top, and the butterscotch is just over the top with caramel sauce drizzled over each piece (My favorite is chocolate, but that's not really a surprise...).

This particular pie is Pumpkin Spice Flavored. Jell-O brand pudding mixes release seasonal flavors and the pumpkin spice was one I picked up back during the holidays but didn't get around to using until now...


Creamy Deluxe Pie
1 (3.4 oz.) pkg. any flavor instant pudding mix
1 c. milk
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (8 oz.) container frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
1 graham cracker pie crust

In a medium size mixing bowl combine the pudding mix and milk.
Beat for 1-2 minutes until smooth and thickened. Set aside for 3-4 minutes.

In the mean time, in a large mixing bowl beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Add pudding mixture to beaten cream cheese and continue mixing until completely incorporated.  Fold in 1/2 of the frozen whipped topping.
Pour into graham cracker crust and refrigerate for about 4 hours, or until firmly set.


Cover with remaining whipped topping, cut into 8 equal size slices and serve!
