The Best Cream Pies


Every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas time there is one type of pie that my family all requests...Cream Pies!  Years ago I learned of the best way to make them and it's so simple anyone can do it.
To make the cream pie:

1 graham cracker crust (you can use normal crust as well, this is just a preference)
1 large box of pudding- the flavor you want the cream pie to be.
1 container of cool whip topping

Follow the directions on the pudding box to make for PIE (it calls for less milk).  Once the pudding is mixed up fold all but a spoon full of the cool whip into the pudding.
Pour into your pie crust and then top with the remaining cool whip.

For chocolate cream- shave some chocolate on top
For Banana cream- serve with fresh banana's (but don't put them on until right before serving so they don't go brown)
For Coconut cream- use vanilla pudding, add 1/2 t. coconut extract and 1 cup of coconut to the pudding.  Sprinkle some toasted coconut on top

These pies are usually the first to be eaten! Enjoy!
