Recipe by Stephsfanny
This is a "left-overs" recipe, using the remaining pumpkin pie filling that just won't fit in the standard pie shells. Instead of tossing it out, make this deliciously sweet layered pie!
- 9 inches graham cracker crust (ready-made is fine)
- 2 cups pumpkin pie filling, uncooked and prepared according to your preferred recipe (I generally have about 2 cups left, after filling 2 8-inch pie shells)
- 1 (3 1/2 ounce) package vanilla instant pudding mix
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2 cups whipped cream, divided (Dream whip or whipped topping will work, but won't be as rich)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
