Peppermint Cream Pie

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.
