Pumpkin Chiffon Pie
Now, don’t get too worried about putting together a pumpkin chiffon pie, even if chiffon eludes a fancy feeling. This is so easy. You could probably do it without a mixer, but who wants to work that hard!
Start by mixing one cup of milk with two small boxes of vanilla or french vanilla pudding. Once combined, add a can of pumpkin. Add pumpkin pie spice too. Mix to incorporate into the pudding.
Fold in the whipped topping. The whole container. Don’t hold back. Fold it in. And when it is a smooth. Luscious. Silky pumpkin filling, pour it into a graham cracker crust pie shell. Or a ginger snap cookie pie crust. But Kroger doesn’t sell those pre-made so I used graham cracker. Then smooth it all out so it is so pretty.
Then refrigerate it. The pudding has to set up you know. You can go ahead and lick the bowl. And the spatula. The beaters a fair game too. After all, there aren’t any eggs in this pie. So go ahead and go get your nails done. Or watch a Hallmark movie. Because you are going to be the hit of the feast with this pumpkin chiffon pie.
