Let's Make PIE!!!!!!

Double Layer-Whipped Pumpkin Pie
Wanted to share this wonderful recipe with you all today. It has been my daughter, Kristen's, favorite Thanksgiving Day pie for...hmmmmmm.., well, around 17 years. It is really something and makes up so easy.
Sorry I do not have a picture to show, but, we won't be making and baking our pies until tomorrow evening. Thought to post this just in case any of you are looking for a traditional pie, with a new twist. Friends who are not big fans of pumpkin pie, will actually eat this. It is a winner.
Here we go....
Using a wire whisk and large bowl, mix 4 ounces of softened cream cheese, 1 Tablespoon milk (or 1/2 and 1/2), and 1 Tablespoon sugar, until nice and smooth. Gently, stir in 1 and 1/2 cup of thawed Cool Whip. In a pre-baked pie crust, that has been cooled, spread this layer onto the bottom of your pie crust.
In a bowl, pour 1 cup cold milk, 1 can (16 ounces---or 2 cups) plain pumpkin, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1/4 tsp cloves...mix. Now a little fun...use 2 packages Jell-o Vanilla Instant pudding (the 4 serving size boxes). Mix all this together, still using a wire whisk. This all gets nice and thick. Spread this over cream cheese, etc. layer. Refrigerate for 4 hours.
Hope some of you will be able to give this wonderful pie a try. It is well worth the effort.
Thanks for following our blog.
We really enjoy your comments and most of all, your kindness, love and our old and new friendships. Means so much to us!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to each and everyone of YOU!


  1. YUM...this does sound wonderful. Thanks for sharing it..have a great Thanksgiving day! :D

  2. It's fun to remember that special Thanksgiving in Canton when Kristen and I made this pie together. Thanks for the memory. Love Grandma.

  3. I had the same thought. It was that special Thanksgiving that we made the double layer pumpkin pie for the first time, the mile high apple pie, and I think the coconut cream with the brown sugar, butter, nut layer. Still divine. We have continued to make them every year since then. I also remember this same Thanksgiving with the wonderful pies, that I got very, very, very sick Thanksgiving eve...all night long...finally fell asleep mid-morning Thanksgiving Day and woke-up to hearing dishes and such being washed ...Thanksgiving was over. I missed it---ha!Was too sick anyways.xoxo
