Pumpkin dream pie

No cooking — a magic filling with Jell-O instant pudding and new Dream Whip!

Pumpkin pie was never so light — or so easy to make. Jell-O instant pudding for the magic of no cooking! New Dream Whip — on it and in it — for the magic lightness.


1 package Dream Whip
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup milk
1 package Jello instant vanilla pudding
1 cup canned pumpkin
3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
8-inch baked pie shell (cooled)


Prepare Dream Whip with 1/2 cup milk and vanilla as directed on package. Combine 1 cup Dream Whip with the Jello pudding, 2/3 cup milk, pumpkin and spice. Beat slowly with egg beater just until well-mixed — about 1 minute. Pour into pie shell. Chill in refrigerator until set — about 2 hours. Top with remaining Dream Whip.

Serves 6

Important: Cooked pudding will not give satisfactory result with this recipe
