Try It Tuesday

Try It Tuesday Cooking Badge

 

You may not know this (actually, it’d be weird if you did) but my dad loves trying out new recipes (the guy is ALWAYS on Pinterest) or finding a recipe and making it his own by tweaking a few things. Sunday night, he treated us to one such recipe and its today’s Try it Tuesday! He found this recipe on AllRecipes.com, but decided to try it minus the banana-flavors!

Here’s what he used:

pie-4

1 graham cracker pie crust

1 package cream cheese, softened

2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant pudding mix (dad used cheesecake and caramel)

3 1/2 cups milk

1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

 

In a medium-sized bowl, whip the cream cheese until fluffy.

Then, add in the remaining ingredients and mix until well blended.

Pour the mixture into the graham cracker crust and refrigerate for at least two hours.

Then, serve! We topped ours with Cool Whip, caramel drizzle, and hot fudge! Mmm!

This turned out pretty good! It tasted like turtle cheesecake! Dad sad that next time he makes it, he’ll be sure that the cream cheese is soft enough (there were still some lumps in the pie). But even with the lumps, it was still tasty!
