Pears and Cream

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Pilates Gal

An easy dessert originally from Joanna Lund that I changed just a little.

Top Review by Chef Jean

This should really be 3 1/2 stars. I think it needs a little more liquid or a little less powdered milk, I could really taste the powdered milk. Other than that, this was a great, simple dessert.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain pears, reserving liquid, and coarsely chop. Toss into pie crust.
  2. Add enough water to pear juice to equal 1 cup liquid. Combine pudding mix and dry milk powder, stir in the juice and mix well. Stir in the extract, jam and 1/4 cup cool whip. Spread over the pears.
  3. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Top with remaining cool whip. Can sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs over top if you like.
