Apple Pie Pudding

Living in the Deep South means EVERYONE has a Banana Pudding (aka Nanner Puddin') recipe in their repertoire and I have mine! And, it is pretty good, even though I'm a Damn Yankee!

But, that gave me the inspiration to create another "cookie" filled pudding. Apples and ginger are a great match, so why not marry ginger snaps and apple pie filling!

I think you and your family will enjoy this incredibly easy and delicious dessert! It will make a great addition to your next picnic or potluck!

Prep:

15 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

8 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
14 oz
sweetened condensed milk
1 small
instant vanilla or cheesecake pudding mix (4 serving size)
1 1/2 c
milk
20 oz
apple pie filling
8 oz
frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 lb
bag of ginger snap cookies

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer on medium speed, beat the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Set aside.
2
In a medium mixing bowl, using the hand mixer on medium speed, beat pudding mix and milk until thickened, about 2 minutes.
3
Open the apple pie filling and run a knife thru the apples, cutting them down to small chunks.
4
Stir the pudding and apple pie filling into the cream cheese mixture and blend until well mixed.
5
Fold in half of the thawed whipped topping until well blended.
6
Spread 2 – 3 large spoonfuls of pudding mixture on bottom of an 8” x 8” pan (or equivalent). Place a layer of whole ginger snap cookies over the pudding. Spoon 1/3 of the remaining pudding mixture evenly over the cookie layer.
7
Repeat with another layer of cookies, another third of the pudding mixture, another layer of cookies and finish with the remaining pudding mixture.
8
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
9
Crush remaining ginger snaps into crumbs. The easiest way to do this is to place cookies in a quart size freezer bag and crush with a rolling pin or heavy glass bottle.
10
To serve, spoon Apple Pie Pudding into a bowl, add a dollop of remaining whipped topping (or real whipped cream) and sprinkle with crushed ginger snaps.
11
Refrigerate any leftovers.
