This is such a wonderful summer pie. This pie is light, cool, and rich in flavor. This is an old recipe passed down by my grandmother from Tennessee.

I made these into miniature desserts to control the portion sizes. I think this is a quick dessert but I'm thinking the vanilla pudding gets drowned out by the chocolate so unless you're going for a layered look (which isn't instructed) it's pointless to use two different puddings. I cheated and used Reddi whip instead of making my own whipped cream. Read More

I made a regular pie crust because I don't like graham cracker crust. I have tried this with graham cracker crust but I like the regular pie crust the best. I bake the crust and let it cool before I put the cream cheese and pecans into it. Read More
