Alright lazy moms. Out of sheer desperation I made a lazy, lazy pie last night.
So don’t laugh at me, okay? But I have NEVER made this type of pie before. You know, the kind where you buy the graham cracker crust pie thingy that’s all ready and waiting for you on the baking aisle? And then you pour in your pudding concoction and let it all set? And then you pile some whipped cream on top of it all?
Are you laughing at me?
At any rate, I figure I may possibly be the only person in the world who HASN’T done this kind of pie yet, but just in case I’m not, I thought I’d share this lazy pie recipe with you all.
Now, remember! To be a lazy mom recipe it has to meet all these cooking requirements. With the most important one being…. it must be easy enough for a lazy mom to do it.
Soooo, this recipe totally qualifies. Without a shadow of a doubt.
Without further ado…. here’s how you make a lazy pie.
1 ready made graham cracker pie crust
1 package of pudding mix (any flavor you want)
1 3/4 cup of milk
1 tub of whipped cream
Once you get the above, it should look something like this on your counter…. (minus the gorgeous flowers, the empty banana stand, the empty paper towel holder, and the almost empty olive oil bottle – well, hopefully)
Simply whisk the milk in with the pudding (make sure you follow the package directions for PIE on the pudding box).
Then pour your pudding mix into your pie crust….
(aren’t these pictures so helpful?! I mean this is so stinkin’ complicated. Good thing I took the time to take them and post them, right?)
Then refrigerate the pie for at least an hour….
Then when it’s all set and firm (or something like that) dollop your whipped cream on top!
For extra fun, sprinkle something on top of it too! For instance, this banana cream pie I just made would be cute with some crushed vanilla wafers sprinkled on top of the whipped cream, am I right? Totally.
So there you have it. A pie so easy even a lazy mom can make it. Which I totally just proved to you because I just made it in literally five minutes.
I can’t believe I hadn’t made one till now.
I guess my desperation paid off for once!
