Pudding Pie


Yield: 9 inch Pudding Pie


  • premade pie crust
  • 1-2 packs instant pudding mix (make with milk)
  • 1-2 cups Cool Whip or a whipped topping (optional)
  • toppings or decorations (optional)


  • 9 inch (or any size you prefer) pie dish
  • mixing bowl

Let’s Make It!

  1. Place the pie crust in the pie dish and then place it in the fridge to cool for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Using instant pudding mix and milk, create pudding.
  3. Take pie crust out of fridge and create a layer of pudding. If you are not using a whipping topping, you can fill it completely, but if you are, fill dish up about half way with pudding.
  4. Place pie in the fridge for a minimum of 1-2 hours to have it set.
  5. If you are using a whipping topping, after the pudding sets in the fridge, take the pie out and cover with the topping.
  6. Complete with any additional toppings or decorations.
  7. Store in refrigerator for up to several days.

Notes & Alternatives

  • Any type of crust, pudding, and toppings can be used to create different combinations.
  • Personal note: This is a favorite of mine! As a kid, one of my aunts would make this when I visited over the holidays. It was just made with graham cracker crust and pudding—I was hooked!
