Bavarian Cream Pie (the easy way)
(inspired by this recipe )
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup cinnamon graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup melted butter
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese softened
2 (3 1/2 ounces) packages instant pudding mix (vanilla for basic Bavarian Cream)
3/4 cup milk
1 16 oz. container of Cool Whip (thawed)
To prepare crust, in a medium bowl add all ingredients and mix until incorporated. Press into bottom and up sides of a pie plate. Set aside.
To prepare pie filling, mix cream cheese, instant pudding and milk together using a blender at low speed. (Be sure cream cheese is softened or it will be difficult to mix together.) When incorporated, using a spatula, fold in container of Cool Whip until the mixture is smooth. Pour filling into pie shell and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Happy Bavarian Cream Pie Day!
- Today I used Coconut Cream instant pudding mix instead of the vanilla but you could always use chocolate, banana or strawberry flavored mixes. I also toasted coconut in the oven at 375 degrees for 7 minutes and topped the pie with these crunchy bits of sweetness.
