Here’s a simple recipe for peppermint cream pie. Kayla usually makes her own crust and pudding, but will use this recipe in a pinch. The pie is her go-to dessert for the holidays.
Super Simple Peppermint Cream Pie:
Pre-made chocolate cookie pie crust
5.1 oz. box instant vanilla pudding
Milk to prepare pudding
8 oz. heavy whipping cream
2-3 miniature candy canes, crushed up (you can also use peppermint candies)
Make the vanilla pudding as directed, including a crushed-up miniature candy cane. (Because I don’t have a food processor, I use a plastic bag and a hammer; this can get messy if the bag breaks).
Pour the pudding mixture into the pie crust and chill in the refrigerator until set.
Whip the cream, again including a crushed-up miniature candy cane.
Spread the cream across the chilled pie.
If desired, add another crushed-up candy cane on top of the pie.
