Cream Puff Pie

Yesterday, for Labor Day, we went to a picnic at my sister-in-law's house. I decided to make "Cream Puff Pie." I'm not really into sweets, but each time I make this it is always so popular! So I thought I'd share the recipe!
Cream Puff Pie
-1 cup water
-1 stick margarine
-1 cup flour
-4 eggs
-3 boxes French Vanilla Instant Pudding
-4 cups milk
-8 oz. cream cheese
-Cool Whip
-Chocolate Sauce/Syrup

Bring 1 cup water and 1 stick margarine to a boil. While boiling, add 1 cup flour, turn off heat and stir until it forms a ball (cool). Add 4 eggs (1 at a time). Hand mix.

Grease a 9"x13" dish and spread dough up the sides of dish. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 25 minutes; let cool.

Beat 3 boxes of pudding and 4 cups of milk together. Set aside. Beat cream cheese until creamy; add to pudding and beat together.

Pour into crust. Top with Cool Whip. Drizzle chocolate sauce on top.
Here is a picture of the pastry shell before I added all the goodness on top!
Here it is finished. Sorry for the bad photos...photographing food is not my thing!

You can get creative when making this. Instead of using French Vanilla Pudding you could use Banana Pudding....my husband likes it that way as well! Or you can use regular vanilla pudding. Just always make sure it's "instant pudding!" Have fun and enjoy! Be sure to get a piece if you make it for a party, because it really goes quick!

I made something a lot like that for my BBQ yesterday. It's called a Chocolate Eclair dessert. I'll be linking to it on Friday (Gotta have some stuff to add to my Friday Fragments LOL)

We were on the same wavelength lol Yours looks real good.

You can also make this exact same recipe and split it into two 9" pie plates.
Thanks you so much for posting this! I have made it for years and lost the recipe and no one else had it quite the same! Thanks!
