Gingerbread Cream Pie

IMG_0157

You guys. My Gilmore Girls binging is coming to a close…it’s another show I can add to the archives of my brain, next to Friends, Friday Night Lights, Monk, Friends again and Dawson’s Creek. Now, I’m left with all of my kids favorite Netflix shows to stream while I edit photos, do dishes, come up with new recipes, and grow another child. And as much as I love DinoTrux and Larva, I think I’d rather find another show to get sucked into. Tell me all your addicting shows. Share the love. Do it because you care. Comment below 🙂

Speaking of addicting things: download the game Patchmania to your iphone or tablet or mobile whatever. You will thank me later, man. It’s crazy good. Brooke and I both play together on the couch for a few minutes everyday after she gets home from school. We’re on level 72, incase you were wondering. #notashamed

 

Also addicting: all these pies I’m making.

I’m on a kick, yo.

The crazy thing about this Gingerbread Cream Pie is it actually tastes like a soft and sweet gingerbread cookie in pie form. It’s BANANAS.

Also: it takes 10 minutes to whip up. OMG.

It’s another pie to add to my “oh crap, what should I make for Thanksgiving dessert” archives next to my Super Speedy Chocolate Pie and my Pumpkin Cream Pie. It’s for all you folks out there who get wrapped up in the holiday festivities and let a thing or two slip your minds. I feel your pain!! So print all these recipes out and have them handy because we are only days away!

  6. Oooh, I love all things gingerbread, this is a must-try! As for shows, maybe not the best idea while you’re baby-growing, but Call the Midwife hit me with all the feelings!

  7. Hm–I don’t love gingerbread, but your recipes haven’t let me down yet. So I might have to give this a try.

    Have you ever watched Longmire? It’s really really good.

    Oh! Oh! And I loved Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. One time, Tyler had a game night, and I watched almost an entire season while he was gone.

  14. Loving the pies and such, but not the way to print now…clicking on the print icon in your recipe gives me your whole blog notes….So have to go to orginal sourse, highlight what I what to print and then, just have your recipe…

  15. I couldn’t get the pie to set. The milk/pudding never seemed to thicken after letting it set. Even after putting the pie in the fridge over night it didn’t set. I even froze it and defrosted it, but it did not have the cream texture and wouldn’t hold. It was just melting. 🙁

    • That’s so weird!! Are you sure you used a 5.1 oz. box of instant pudding {the bigger one}? It should start thickening immediately!!

  16. This pie sounds amazing! I used to be the dessert maker for all events before my 4 kiddos…this will be my re-entry into dessert making:).
    You need to watch Parenthood! Such an amazing show…you will laugh and cry at every episode.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  17. Since I finished my holiday grocery shopping and now see this amazing pie recipe that would be a wonderful addition to the traditional pumpkin…could I use Cool Whip instead of the heavy cream/powdered sugar since I already have it? I know it won’t be as pretty on the outside. But would the taste be similar?

    Thank you!
