Easy As Pie

I made this pie for Father's day and everyone loved it so I thought I would share! It's not often that I cook. I'm much happier calling for pizza instead of standing at the stove. Sometimes I get the motivation to make something. This recipe requires very little actual cooking.


This recipe came from those cards you get in the mail. Do you know the ones I'm talking about? They send you a pack a week until you've acquired the entire set (as you read this the real cooks are frantically clicking off my blog so as not to be seen with me). You've probably gotten the free ones, kept them and thought, "who actually buys these things?" Ummm...yeah, that would be me.


Butterscotch-Banana Cream Pie
1 (9-inch) graham cracker pie crust (I used a 10 inch, not only do I not cook but I can't follow directions either)
3 bananas, sliced
1 (4 oz.) package butterscotch cook and serve pie filling
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups whipped topping (I used Cool Whip and way more than that)


1. Line graham cracker pie crust with bananas.
2. Prepare pie filling according to package directions, using 2 cups milk. Chill for 20 minutes to thicken.
3. Pour pie filling over bananas.
4. Spread whipped topping over pie filling. Refrigerate until serving time.

Sounds wonderful and easy once you tell me this part.
Okay don't laugh at me too hard...:)

Is the Butterscoth pie filling just Butterscotch flavored instant pudding or is it something different?
I have never seen that before at the grocery store. I think I can make this recipe tomorrow after you tell me for sure.

~Thanks, ~Melissa :)

Well, I don't think I'm a real cook. I like breakfast the best. Cereal with fruit and coffee. Every single morning of the world. (Simple) Most nights I fix scrambled eggs for the dogs and have some myself. I hate to think about wasting so much time in a darned kitchen. Can you see that on a tombstone: "She spent most of her time slaving in a kitchen..." That will most-assuredly not be me. This pie looks delectable!
