1/2 Photos of Chocolate Covered Cherry No-Cook Pie
1 hr 10 mins
Normally I am an "entirely from scratch" sort of cook. However, if you have ever been faced with the prospect of making a last minute dessert with very limited ingredients, you may very well appreciate the ease of this simple yet attractive dessert. If the concept of using a store bought cookie crust pie shell and doctoring up pudding mix is appalling to you, then you won't like this at all. But I have made this simple pie many times when pressed for time and it always seems to please - especially when served to children. This is a variation on a recipe found in the Heart Smart Cookbook by Joanna Lund. My version is,obviously, not quite as 'heart healthy' as hers. Her version uses all sugar free and lowfat/fat free ingredients, so if you wish to use any reduced calorie ingredients, by all means do so. I usually use light cream cheese,but I do use real sugar, regular Cool Whip, a either regular or sugar free pudding mix depending upon what I have in the house. You may use sweetened whipped cream if Cool Whip is unavailable, but it won't be quite as stable. Cook time is cooling time (assuming you use the nonfat dry milk powder) - there is no actual cooking involved.
