One of the great summer desserts.
Top Review by Pepper Monkey
I used a premade pie crust for this becuase i didn't feel up to doing all that prepwork involved in a regular pie crust. Seeing as i can never seem to get it right. So this review is just for the filling of this pie. I found all of the fruit fillings frozen and was able to defrost and use that with the pudding. I loved the flavorful combination of the fruit and the pudding. I did however find it a little bitter and plain. So i added some sugar and a dash of cinnamon. My boyfriend and I loved having this for dessert served warm with fresh vanilla ice cream. Thanks. :)
