Layered Red Velvet Cheesecake Pie

This is a light pie. It is pretty and easy and quick to make. It would be pretty to serve on Valentine's Day, Easter, Spring or Christmas.

I wanted to make a pie that was a little different, quick to make and had the Red Velvet look and flavor. This pie has a bright red (Red Velvet) layer, as well as a white layer and a pretty pink topping. It is sooo good -and I have already eaten 2 pieces. LOL!! I hope that you enjoy it!!!

Keep left-overs in the freezer and it will last a good while (until you eat it up).

Ingredients

1
chocolate cookie crust
1
(10.6 oz) container Cool Whip cream cheese frosting (in freezer section)
1 c
dry, red velvet cake mix (divided)
1 pkg
(4-1/2 serving size) cheesecake instant pudding mix
1 1/2 c
milk
1
(12 oz) container Cool Whip topping

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Gently spread the container of Cool Whip Cream Cheese Frosting evenly over the chocolate cookie crust. Put in refrigerator while preparing the pudding layer.
2
Mix well the dry Cheesecake Pudding Mix with 2/3 cup of the dry Red Velvet Cake Mix. Add 1-1/2 cups milk. Whisk until smooth. Let sit in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes, or until it is thick. It will be a pretty red color.

Spoon this evenly over the Cream Cheese Frosting (Cool Whip Brand) layer.
3
Spread with all but about 1 cup of the 12 ounce container of Cool Whip over entire pie.
4
Mix remaining Cool Whip with 1/3 cup of dry, Red Velvet Cake Mix. Wisk until well blended and smooth. This will be a pretty pink.

Spoon this evenly in the middle of the plain Cool Whip layer.
5
Chill pie in the freezer for about 1 hour. You can keep leftovers in the refrigerator; but I think it holds up better and is easier to cut if you keep it in the freezer.
6
Slice the pie and enjoy!

Yum!!!!
