Alex decided that she wanted to make a pie this weekend and I said, "have at it!" She made a triple layer pumpkin spice pie and it tasted wonderful!
Here's the recipe.
- 2 cups cold milk
- 2 pkg. Pumpkin Spice flavor instant pudding and pie filling
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tub Cool Whip
- 1 graham pie crust
- 1/2 cup pecan halves
- 1 tbsp honey
- Beat milk, pudding mixes, and cinnamon with wire whisk until well blended. Spread 1.5 cups onto bottom of crust
- Add 1.5 cups of whipped topping to remaining pudding mixture and stir gently. Spoon over layer in crust; top with remaining whipped topping
- Refrigerate for 1 hour. Cook pecans and honey in skillet on medium-low heat 2 - 4 minutes or until pecans are caramelized, stirring frequently. Spread onto a sheet of waxed paper, separating larger clusters. Cool. Sprinkle over pie just before serving.
We omitted the pecan step.
She had a little mishap while slicing. :-)
She did an awesome job, yeah? It tasted really good, too! Have a great weekend!
