Magical Pudding Pie


I used to make desserts and goodies all the time! I enjoyed making them and my Dad enjoyed devouring them! Since Dad passed away and I have put on a few pounds over the years, I don’t make as many desserts as I used to.

A while back I was really craving some pie (so NOT on my diet!) when I ran across this recipe for a low cal pie and thought I would give it a try. So I decided to make The Magical Pudding “Pie” Dessert. What makes this dessert “magical” is after sitting the required amount of time, the saltine crackers taste just like a phyllo dough! It’s an amazing dessert, and good for the dieter or non-dieter (my daughters gobbled it up!)- THIS WORKS FOR ME!!!

Works for Me Wednesday
is now being hosted at We Are THAT Family!! ….be sure to get over there are see what works for others!!!

So here’s the recipe……………I hope you enjoy it as much as we did (we’ve also made butterscotch, that was always one of Dad’s favorites!)

    That looks delicious! Will see if I can find those ingredients here and try it out. :)

    Thank you for the advice on how to treat a hoarse throat. Just come my voice back but not yet 100%. The warm water with salt treatment helped a lot as well as nonstop drinking of ginger tea and water and plenty of rest.

    Oh my, oh my! I made this for the first time and it was one of the best desserts I’ve ever had! It definately fits into my new, healthy way of eating. I’ve lost 50 pounds over the last year, and sweets are one thing that I miss the most. This fits in well and the whole family enjoyed it. I will be keeping all the ingredients on hand for making it on a whim! Thanks for a great post.

    Reminds me of a “cake” my mom used to make with pudding and grahams. We loved that cake. Yours is making me drool!! Love the saltines…chocolate and salt are a winning combo.
