Recipe by Elaine
Made similar to a Chocolate Eclair Cake, but with a layer of pie filling and no chocolate. Can be made with "full sugar and fat" items, but as many in my family are trying to watch our diets, I make as lite as possible. Allow time for cake to set in fridge. You may use canned vanilla frosting, but I make a modified version of Sugar-Free Frosting "Sugar-free frosting"
- 2 (1 ounce) packages sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
- 4 cups skim milk
- 1 (8 ounce) container fat-free cool whip
- 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 (16 ounce) box cinnamon graham crackers
- 2 (21 ounce) cans reduced sugar apple pie filling or 2 (21 ounce) cans no-sugar-added apple pie filling
- 1 (1 ounce) package sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 3⁄4 cups skim milk
- 1 (8 ounce) package fat free cream cheese
- 1 (8 ounce) container fat-free cool whip, thawed
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cinnamon
