Today I’m making a Frozen Chocolate Pudding Pie for the kids. They skedaddled off to go fishing up at Stovers, so I decided to surprise them with a cool treat when they return. This is is another quick an easy to make good tastin’ pie.
1 pastry pie shell (this can be either pastry or if you like graham cracker)
1 package Instant Chocolate Pudding ( if I don’t make my own pudding I like to use Chocolate Fudge instant pudding) I use instant today.
1 cup Vanilla Ice Cream (on the soft side)
Whipped Cream (I like the tub cream but to make it easy you can use canned cream)
Bake your pastry pie shell. If making your own be sure it’s rolled thin – you don’t want a apple or peach type pie shell for a frozen pudding pie.
Prepare pudding as directed on box.
add one cup vanilla ice cream to pudding. I like to take a spoon and just skim off the top of the ice cream about a cup worth. My son likes chunks of vanilla ice cream in the frozen pudding.
That’s it for now. Put the pie in the freezer 2-3 hours or so to set.
After the pie is set – decorate with whipped cream and use a peeler to shed chocolate off the bar. Put pie back in freezer for for about an hour or eat it now.
I like to put back in the freezer for awhile because the kids like to cut their own pieces and a totally frozen pie is easier for the kids and less mess for me to clean up.
Graham Cracker Pie Shell
1/3 cup butter (melted)
10 – 12 graham crackers (whole) about 1.5 cups
1/4 cup brown sugar
In a medium bowl crush up crackers. Add the sugar and butter. Mix well.
Press evenly around your pie pan. Put shell in refrigerator 1 hour or so (helps stay together when you cut it)
Bake at 375 for 10 mins.
Before you cut this shell to serve – dip bottom of pan in hot water for a 1/4 minute or so. Easier to lift pie outta the pan.
Pastry Pie Shell
1- 1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter (cold and chopped into small pieces)
1/4 cup cold water
Combine flour and salt in big bowl.
Add butter pieces until mixture looks like crumbles.
Stir in water a tablespoon at a time, until a ball forms.
Wrap in plastic and refrigerate a couple hours.
