On Sunday I was getting all ready to start my Christmas cookies and I came across this recipe on Joythebaker.com and decided I HAD to make it. I am not a pie maker, actually I have never made a pie unless it was made with a pre made crust and pudding! Now let me get this out there, I do not eat baked or cooked fruit. So I didn’t make this for me, I made it for Mike and the kids as they love this kind of stuff.
I will apologize first as I meant to take a lot more pictures of this dessert and I was hoping to have a nice big piece to take a picture of in the end. But I made this for Connor’s (my 3rd grader) class at school, which is also why the pieces are cut a lot smaller than I normally make them. Connor’s class had a tasting party for recipes that mean something special to their family. This one has been passed down and made since my Great Grandma.
Personally I like it made with butterscotch pudding but I know chocolate is more of a hit with kids. I also know people who have made it with vanilla pudding, but I am not a fan of that.
This was one of the first desserts I ever made and it turned out horrible! Why? Because I didn’t read the box of pudding and bought the kind you have to cook not the instant one… oops! Now I am really really careful about that.
