It’s been a little crazy since Baby Q has been home so I haven’t had the kids helping me much in the kitchen. This week Little Man was begging me for a dessert so I finally gave in and raided the cabinets to see what I could come up with. I found two boxes of White Chocolate pudding that I must have bought for some recipe a long time ago that I never made. I couldn’t remember what so I decided to do something with it. I asked on Facebook if I should just make pudding or make a pie out of it and I got a resounding “PIE!”
First Little Man helped me make a graham cracker crust and then Monkey saw we were cooking and she jumped in helping mix the pudding for the pie. As you can see, Baby Q was in on the action in my carrier at the same time. This is a very simple and quick recipe to make and it really does set quickly, but I’d let it sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
White Chocolate Pudding Pie
- 2 sleeves Graham Crackers
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter melted
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2- 4 serving boxes of Instant White Chocolate Pudding
- 3 cups Milk I used whole
- Cool Whip or Whipped Cream for topping
- Preheat oven to 375.
- In a food processor, grind up your graham crackers. You will only use 1.5 cups in this recipe so you can save the extras if you'd like.
- Mix graham crackers, sugar, melted butter and cinnamon until well blended. Press the mixture into your 8 or 9 inch pie plate.
- Bake your pie crust for 7 minutes.
- In a bowl, whisk together the white chocolate pudding and milk until well blended.
- Pour pudding into pie shell and refrigerate for at least two hours.
- Top with Cool Whip or Whipped Cream and serve.
This recipe was a big hit in our family! We had surprise guests stop by that night so they ate over half the pie and really liked it. I love how simple it is to make. The kids could have made it themselves if they just crushed the graham crackers instead of using a food processor.
