I have made this three times in the past week for different holiday gatherings and the result was the same every time- it was the first dessert to go amidst six or seven others. After hearing the comments from people eating it, those who didn't get a slice were begging for a taste! I did make a few changes. First, I added a quarter cup of white sugar to the crust. Next I added a teaspoon of vanilla to the cream cheese mixture. Then I also used 1 1/3 cups of milk as others suggested. Finally, I topped the whipped cream with mini chocolate morsels. Super easy and scrumptious. Read More

Definately a tasty and EASY recipe! I made this for New Year's eve and there were lots of desserts there this one got the most raves! My sister really wants the recipe! Changes I made: I put toffee chips in between the cream cheese and pudding layers and on top. I also used 1 1/3 milk for the pudding 1/4 cup sugar in he crust and 1 tsp of vanilla in the cream cheese. Read More

Simple yet elegant with a great presentation this dessert was a hit! I used a combo of pecans and cashews in my crust (didn't have enough pecans) and added a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar. Baked my crust for about 20 mins perfect! I used light cream cheese fat free Cool Whip and fat free pudding mix (like any of it matters!!). I do believe that 2/3 cup of milk is a typo in this recipe...the box directions are 2 cups but I think it depends how thick you want your pudding layer to be within this pie. I used about 1 1/2 cups of milk and found it perfect! Decorated the top with semi-sweet chocolate shavings just beautiful! Five stars plus and a repeat for sure! Read More

Definite typo-on the milk- I use 2 small packages of instant pudding and 3 cups milk. I've been making this recipe for years and everyone raves about it. I toast 1/2 cup pecans 1/2 cup coconut flakes and a little butter cool and sprinkle on top. For potlucks I bake in 9 X 13 pan- it's easier to serve and goes further. Read More

My mother has been making this recipe since I was born I think. We always double the recipe and put it in a 9x13 to take to parties and get-togethers. I've made it so many times that I rarely can stand to eat it but everyone always BEGS me or my mom to make it again and again. Read More

This was an excellant recipe. I did add the teaspoon of vanilla to the cream cheese and I made the pudding at directed on the package. I also used a graham cracker crust instead of making my own. And put chopped pecans on top. It was very easy and very delicious!! I also added another box of pudding for an even fuller pie Read More

This pie was awesome! I added 1/4 cup sugar to the crust and used 1 1/3 cups of milk in the pudding layer. The crust was so good. Next time I might try brown sugar in the crust. This is a definite keeper! Read More
