This is my husbands favorite pie. I have no idea if there is a recipe for this out there. This is the way I make it. It is delicious! It is also a very easy recipe, to add to the ending of your holiday meal. Enjoy all!
Cook pudding mix with milk in sauce pan. See instructions for pie on box. Omit one cup milk from pie directions. Normally it is 2 cups milk per box. Use 1 1/2 c milk per box. Cook and stir to boiling. After it thickens. remove frim heat. Cool for 15 minutes.
While it is cooling. Beat the cream cheese, sugar and tablespoon of milk together. Mix in 4 ounces (1/2) the Cool Whip. Combine well.
Spread cheese mixture in bottom of crust. Top cheese layer with cooled pudding. Put in fridge uncovered for a few hours or overnight. Serve with remaining Cool Whip. Garnish with nuts, chocolate chips or shaved chocolate.
