Creamy Cheesy Pie

ready to slice & serve
My mother- in- law introduced me to Creamy Cheesy Pie.  It was decades ago when Jim & I visited his parents in Florida.  Two weeks before arriving, I had prepared a cheesecake that took 2 hours to prepare.  After making the pie crust shell, the filling was prepared.  Then, the cheesecake was baked.  It tasted so delicious, but it was so time consuming.

On this particular visit to the sunny state I was introduced to a very easy dessert.  After dinner one night, we all enjoyed our dessert- Creamy Cheesy Pie.  It was served with a little whipped cream on top.  Oh, it was so good!  My MIL told me it was a "cinch" to make.  She was not kidding!!!  One 2- serving box of vanilla cook & serve pudding was prepared & it was combined with 8 ounces of Cream Cheese.  Then, the mixture was poured into a pre-made graham cracker crust.  Into the fridge it went to cool.  O.K. , now that is easy!!!  It's not only easy, it tastes so good!!! 

No, I never went back to preparing that other Cheesecake again.  ;) 

This is a dessert I make "every so often".  Cheesecake has always been a favorite dessert of mine.  Polish Cheesecake, Carrot Cheesecake & Key Lime Cheesecake are quite hard to resist in my book.  This one is too!!!

A Few Hints:
  •  My family uses 1% Milk, so I add 1 Tablespoon powdered milk into pot before making pudding.
  • I use Jell-O brand pudding mix, because I do not burn the pot when I use the Jell-O brand.  :)

  • My son has prepared a delicious Chocolate Creamy Cheesy Pie using chocolate pudding mix.

Mmmm, mmm, Judy! It sounds delicious and so easy to make. Years ago my MIL also made a cheesecake using jello pudding, I lost the recipe and bet this is close to it, thanks for the recipe.
Polish cheesecake is a new one to me!
