No-Bake Freezer Pie (finger pie)

I've made this recipe a few times but never from an actual recipe.  I sort of used a few yummy recipes and made my own version.  This is a delicious "cheesecake" freezer pie that will leave your family asking for more!

To find out why I call it finger pie, check out Back to the Basics!  It's kinda (not) funny!

No-Bake Cheesecake Freezer Pie

Ingredients:
1 no-bake graham cracker crust (feel free to make your own)

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/8 tablespoon butter
1/2 package of fat-free cream cheese, softened

1 packet (box) of cheesecake (instant) pudding
2 cups milk (I use non-fat)

Directions:
Place butter and chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave for approximately 50 seconds.  Stir until smooth.  Add cream cheese and stir until smooth.  Add mixture evenly onto the bottom of the pie crust.

Prepare your pudding according to the package.  Mine stated to wisk contents with milk for 2 minutes.

Pour Pudding over the layer of chocolate in your pie crust.  Cover and freeze!
Your pie should be ready in about 3 hours.  Serve with a dollop of whipped cream if you wish.  The pie is super rich but you could also serve with homemade strawberry or blueberry sauce.

I told a friend about "finger pie" and we started talking about making this for Halloween.  I'm going to have to share those ideas later!

  13. I've never tried a no-bake pie and this one sounds delicious! But I'm not sure what a 'packet of cheesecake pudding' is? I've never heard of it before.

    1. Hi Kelly! Jello makes cheesecake flavored instant pudding. It comes in a small box with a packet inside. You can use just about any flavor of pudding mix for this pie and it will still be delicious!
