This is a really good pie but I think it would have been better if some of the cool whip in the filling was substituted with more pumpkin to give the pie more flavor. Read More

It is easy to make but the pumpkin part of the pie isn't very sweet. No one even took a piece at Christmas -- in all fairness this pie was competing against a Blackberry sourcream pie as well as cherry cheesecake.... Read More

This pie was wonderful but be warned! It's very RICH! I made very few adjustments. I made my own pie crust which added to the flavor: 1 c. flour 1/2 c. softened butter 1/2 c. chopped pecans; blend; press into the pie pan bottom & sides; bake for 15 minutes. Then follow the directions from there. I didn't have 2 boxes of vanilla pudding (& not going back to the store on Thanksgiving!!) so I used 1 box of vanilla & 1 box of chocolate pudding. WOW!!!!!:o) I also used my own whipped cream with coconut flavoring and about 1/3 c. of coconut flakes mixed in.:o) Read More

I used skim milk fat free Cool Whip fat free pudding mixes and a reduced fat graham cracker crust to help keep the total fat and calories down and it was delicious! I am planning on bringing this to Thanksgiving dinner to offer a desert option for those watching their diet! Read More

This is soo good and soo easy. I have used both pumpkin pudding and chocolate pudding. I think there are several flavors of pudding that would be good such as butterscotch vanilla... mmm good!! I have made this many times. I prefer the shortbread crust with chocolate pudding yet graham crust works good too. Read More

Tasty but my pie turned out to be the consistency of a thick pudding. Is that how it is suppose to be? Because the picture looks more like a traditional pumpkin pie and mine.... well its a big pile of mush. Tasty mush though:-) I really like the caramel on the crust. Read More
