Chocolate Cream Pie

When I think of Thanksgiving dinner I think of pie. So for our Thanksgiving collaboration dinner, I knew there had to be a lot of pie choices and I knew I wanted to make one of them.

Chocolate Cream Pie

My favorite sort of pies are actually not the most traditional Thanksgiving pies. Of course I have to eat a small piece of those as well, you know, pumpkin, apple, pecan, etc. But my favorite pies to get a really big piece of at Thanksgiving dinner are the cream pies. Of the chocolate, coconut or banana variety. I’ll take one of each please.

This time I decided to go with a chocolate pie. I had never made an oreo crust before and I knew this was a good time to try it out (Its almost exactly the same as a graham cracker crust, just fyi – which I knew, but still wanted to try it)

Chocolate Cream Pie

I once again went the half from scratch method with this pie, as I did with my green bean casserole. I made a fresh oreo pie crust instead of buying one from the store (though you could do that too) and then filled it with boxes of store bought instant pudding. Inspired by this Kraft Recipe for Oreo Triple Layer Chocolate Pie.

    Yum! What an amazing looking pie. I love chocolate cream pie – so chocolatey but still light and fluffy. What a nice departure from the usual (but still delicious) usual pie flavors found on most Thanksgiving tables.
