The Magical Pudding "Pie" Dessert
I used to make desserts and goodies all the time! I enjoyed making them and my Dad enjoyed devouring them! Since Dad passed away and I have put on a few pounds over the years, I don't make as many desserts as I used to.
A few weeks ago I was really craving some pie (so NOT on my diet!) when I ran across this recipe for a low cal pie and thought I would give it a try. So last week I decided to make The Magical Pudding "Pie" Dessert. What makes this dessert "magical" is after sitting the required amount of time, the saltine crackers taste just like a phyllo dough! It's an amazing dessert, and good for the dieter or non-dieter (my daughters gobbled it up!)
So here's the recipe...............I hope you enjoy it as much as we did (next time I'm going to make butterscotch, that was always one of Dad's favorites!)
1 (1.4 oz.) Package Sugar Free Chocolate Instant Pudding (or your favorite flavor)
2 Cups Skim Milk
32 Salted-Top Saltine Crackers
1 (8 oz.) Container Fat Free Cool Whip
Mix the instant pudding and milk together and place into the refrigerator 10 minutes.
Place 16 crackers in the bottom of an 8X8 pan.
Spoon half of the pudding mixture on top of the crackers, spreading evenly.
Place the other 16 crackers on top of the pudding, and then spoon the other half of the pudding mixture on top of the last set of crackers.
Top with the whole container of cool whip.
Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
