My Pumpkin Pie

I was surprised to hear that there are others that don't like pumpkin. I felt so alone! I was really surprised that so many of you showed interest in trying my pie, so I'll post the recipe here.

3/4 cup cold milk
1 package (4 serving size) vanilla instant pudding and pie mix
1/2 cup solid pack pumpkin
pinch ground cloves
pinch nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cups chopped walnuts
2/3 cups chocolate chips
3  cups Cool Whip
graham cracker crust

Mix milk and pudding until well blended. Let stand 5 minutes.

Blend in pumpkin, spices, nuts, chocolate chips and 2 cups Cool Whip

Spoon into crust

At this point you can chill the pie for 4 hours and serve, but we like it best frozen. Freeze for 4 hours, garnish with Cool Whip and serve.

Frozen, it tastes like pumpkin ice cream pie. Even I like it and Rob ate two generous slices yesterday.

Enjoy.

Mom is not a big fan of pumpkin pie at all, but she had some last night that was really different. It is similar to yours, but there was a bottom layer that was made with cream cheese and something and then the pudding mix and pumpkin made the top layer, and then add a dollop of whipped cream or cool whip. She says she will have to see if she can get the recipe. Yours sounds really tasty. Thanks for sharing.

I think I'll have to try this recipe. To Australians, it's quite strange that you eat pumpkin as a sweet, because we almost exclusively eat it as a vegetable. Roast pumpkin - yum!!

However, lately the supermarkets here are trying and trying to get us to celebrate Halloween, and I saw giant pumpkins in the stores - pumpkins that are very different from the ones we grow here, so maybe the ones you eat are not the same varieties as the ones we eat.

I never thought of putting a graham cracker crust on a traditional pumpkin pie, but I think it would be great, too. I always used my mother-in-law's recipe (old-fashioned crust made with real lard) - you're giving me ideas! Your recipe sounds so tasty!
