Cream Pie - Anyway you like it!!!

Oh my...yummy!!  I love simple desserts that dress to impress and this appears to be one of those recipes.

Cream Pie–any way you like it!
submitted by Melanie~The Sisters Cafe

1 small package instant pudding
1 cup milk
1 pint icecream, softened
1 pie shell (ready made or homemade graham or pastry, cooked and cooled)

Beat pudding mix and milk for 2 minutes. Blend softened ice cream into pudding. Pour into a prepared shell that has been baked and cooled. I usually use a graham cracker one because I prefer it over pastry, but either one will work! Chill for at least 2 hours in fridge–I have chilled is quickly in the freezer for 30 minutes-1 hour with great results! You can vary the flavors of pudding and ice cream to get different pies. Always top with a dollop of COOL WHIP and the garnishes you choose. Here are a few ideas to get you started…

*Coconut Cream Pie: coconut pudding, vanilla ice cream, and toasted coconut
*Chocolate Cream Pie: chocolate pudding, chocolate ice cream, and chocolate shavings
*Banana Cream Pie: banana pudding, vanilla ice cream, and fresh banana slices with drizzled caramal topping
*Lemon Cream Pie: lemon pudding, vanilla ice cream, and fresh berries

The sky is the limit! Really with all the ice cream and pudding flavors, you could really get creative! 

Thanks, The Sisters Cafe
