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

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!)
