Tutorial Tuesday – Double Layer Cream Cheese Pie April 9, 2013

Posted by Sindy in Cooking, Tutorial Tuesday.

So I mentioned on pie day this idea for a cream cheese pie. Well, it didn’t happen until last Monday. Oh well. Anyway, here’s a lovely tutorial on how to do it yourself.

Double-Layer Cream Cheese Pie

2 (9 in) graham cracker pie crusts
1 (8 oz) cream cheese
1/2 C sugar
1 tub whipped topping, thawed
1 pkg pudding mix
1 3/4 milk (or whatever the pudding mix says for pie filling)

– food processor (or blender, or mixer, or a super-strong hunk)
– spatula
– bowl
– whisk
– measuring cups
– recipe (of course)

Ingredients and tools

1. Put cream cheese and sugar in food processor. I like to divide the cream cheese into chunks to make it easier to blend (I tried to make a flower when I scraped the chunks onto the shaft of the food processor, but the sugar kind of hides it). Blend it until it’s super smooth and the sugar is either disolved or finely ground (I’m not sure which it does, but it should be super smooth).

2. Add the whipped topping and blend until barely blended. (Note: it’s hard to get a photo of yourself holding a container and scraping it out. That spatula is just strategically positioned on top of the food processor to get this shot.)

3. Pour into pie shells. It may be tricky to divide it evenly into two shells. Try your best, but don’t worry if you don’t get it perfect.

4. Place pies in fridge for approximately an hour. (Placing pie on top of the chicken is optional.)

5. Meanwhile, back at the ranch (hehe, had to say that), after the hour’s up but while the pies are still in the fridge, mix up your pudding mix. Once dissolved just pour on top of your pies. Chill for another hour or so.

6. Wait, do I need a step to tell you to enjoy your pie? Maybe I’ll just use this step to tell you to lick the utensils. Or I could tell you that our pie was made with pistachio pudding and it was yummy with the cream cheese part. Hmmm, I wonder what butterscotch would be like, or vanilla. Um, that might not be fair since both layers would be white-ish and one would be vanilla flavor and each bite you wouldn’t know what you were getting.

Pie is done and delicious!

Anyway, Enjoy!
