Don't ask me who dubbed this Possum Pie or why. But putting chocolate pudding, cream cheese, pecans, and whipped cream together in a pie shell... who cares what you call it besides to die for? This recipe dates from the 1950s. Interestingly, Possum Pie more recently morphed into a somewhat similar dessert known as "Better Than Robert Redford."
