Grandma's No-Roll-Crust Chocolate Pie

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Jeff Neidecker

I like this because I’m not very good with rolling out pie crusts and the prep time and cook time are fast when you need something on the run. I also wanted to share the recipe because it’s very old. My grandma said this has been passed on for a very long time. I have added the chocolate pudding and Cool Whip to make it an even faster recipe.

Sha Lyn, you need to read the directions more carefully; the pudding and cool whip are for the pie filling, the rest is for the crust. Jeff, thanx for a great idea; I will be trying in the future.
