A Question About Pie

My kids want me to bake them a chocolate cream pie. I absolutely hate to bake and have never made a pie in my life. If I bought a prepared pie crust from the supermarket and spooned some Swiss Miss chocolate pudding into it, would it taste the same?

Only if you put whipped cream on top it the pudding...YUM!!

Your idea sounds delish. I have a slightly different idea: buy a pie crust & some chocolate Tofutti. Let the Tofutti soften slightly, then spread in the crust. Top with sprinkles or whatever topping you like, then refreeze and take out 10 minutes before serving.

Mine asked for cheesecake. Is today "Ask your mother for hard to make pastry day" and if yes, why did no one tell me yesterday when i was grocery shopping?

Another variation -
1. Melt a bag of chocolate chips
2. blend with one package silken tofu
3. add dash of vanilla
4. pour into graham cracker crust
5. refrigerate

Serve with whipped topping.

Its delicious, easy, and can be pareve.

Sounds good to me. Oy, it brings back memories of trying having to bake this "French Silk Pie" in 5th grade as a project. Somehow i messed up the step with the margarine and ended up with French Chocolate with Margarine Chunk Pie". Yours sounds infinitely better!

Agree that you need to add the whipped topping over the pudding, and maybe some sprinkles or chocolate chips dusted over the top.

This instant stuff works just as great as the from scratch from in my experience. :)
