A delicious and easy recipe for your Thanksgiving table that you can make ahead. This recipe was in the Family Circle magazine.
"Definately a 5-star recipe! My family loves it. Tastes great with a gingersnap cookie crust too. Turns out perfect every time! (I use whole milk with instant pudding mix, it needs the fat to set up, it might not work as well with soy or no/low-fat milk.) "- cypurcell

jamiegrinnell 1 year agoWhere's the chocolate? It can't be called turtle without the chocolate. I'll be using chocolate and caramel to drizzle on top. That'll make it a true turtle :)

Haileydickens 1 year agoSuper good! Its like a whipped cream version of pumpkin pie. Super good. Ohh and this was the recipe that I learned how to 'drizzle' caramel. Make sure to just dip the spoon in the caramel and drizzle like that. Dont get a spoon full of it

Amhensley 2 years agoI love this pie. I took it to work and it made the biggest riot! Be careful if cut in 8 pieces with 10 employees! P.S. Use a thick caramel sauce. Magic Shell is great idea. Thanks!
