Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pie is easy to make and tastes great. This pie is easy to make and tastes great. I used a pre-made graham cracker crust from the store and also used reduced fat cream cheese, 1% milk and fat free cool whip. Everyone loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! Fabulous! I made this exactly from the recipe, but I would suggest the following change: The crust is delicious with the vanilla wafers, but it was too skimpy for me, so I would either double the crust ingredients or at least make 1 1/2 the crust ingredients. My husband suggested placing toasted nuts between the cream cheese layer and the pudding layer...sounds good to me and I will try that next time. I will also try different pudding mixes as has been suggested by others! Truly a keeper for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've had this recipe for over 35's our family classic. I've had this recipe for over 35's our family classic. In fact, my mother-in-law gave it to me and she made it for Easter this year. We make it with any Jell-o Pudding flavor and it's great,try using a square baking pan and making it flat, it looks really nice when you serve it. In recent years we use the sugar-free line of Pudding & Cool Whip and it's just as wonderful. We never knew the name of it so we simply call it "Gramma Cindy's Chocolate Stuff" (or Lemon, Pistachio, etc. Stuff)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pie is to die for! This pie is to die for! I have made it a couple of times for guests and they all raved about it. My mother and grandmother are very picky eaters and don't like to try new things but they absolutly loved it! Very very easy too! I was going to buy an "already made" pie shell but decided to try this crust recipe and it really just enhanced the flavor. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful and easy! Wonderful and easy!! I have followed the directions but use a graham cracker pie crust to save time. You can get 2 pies this way with an 8in crust. Or you can use just one but it will be very full! Its really whatever you have handy. I top it with chocolate sprinkles and use skim milk and sugar free whipped topping and its gone in no time :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this for over 30 years, but always doubled in a 9X13 pan. I have made this for over 30 years, but always doubled in a 9X13 pan. The nuts add such a great taste to the crust you just cant omit. And best of all you can use what ever flavor pudding you want. Couple of my favorites are French Vanila and I also love Pistacio for the taste and color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was awesome. This recipe was awesome. It was easy to make and everyone at our church potluck loved it. When I made it, I substituted the regular pudding with the fat free/ sugar free pudding. I also used Cool-Whip Free and used the 1/3 less fat cream cheese. No one could tell the difference.
