What do you do when your pie shell cracks? Toss it away? No way!
When I had a pie shell crack on me recently, I decided to use it for a cream pie, something that wouldn't soak through a crack in my crust. I knew pudding mixes could be used to make pies, so I checked out what was in my cabinet and whipped up this little treat.
1 small box of chocolate fudge pudding
1 small box of banana cream pudding
3 1/2 cups cold milk, divided
1 baked pie shell
a few chocolate chips (optional)
In a small bowl, combine a small box of chocolate fudge pudding with 1 3/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for five minutes, then pour into baked pie crust. Refrigerate for an hour.
In another small bowl, combined the small box of banana cream pudding with the other 1 3/4 cups cold milk. Again, whisk for five minutes. Pour on top of chilled chocolate pudding and smooth evenly. Refrigerate for at least another hour or two.
When it's time to serve, sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top for decoration.
