Cool Whip Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Smooth with a hint of pumpkin and just the right amount of sweetness this Cool Whip Pumpkin Pie Recipe also known as Pumpkin Fluff Pie is delicious!
Cool Whip is a classic on the Thanksgiving dessert table. Mixing it with pumpkin puree creates a light, cloud like texture that is always popular.
This pie can easily be mixed up ahead of time using a large 16-ounce container of whipped topping and stored in the refrigerator. Just before the meal begins spread the fluff in a purchased graham cracker crust and set it out on the dessert table.
Two containers of Cool Whip creates a lighter fluffier pie – thus the fluff description.
Using only one container of cool whip creates a richer and creamy pumpkin dip that is a bit deeper orange in color. This version tastes great in a graham cracker crust too. It’s really about personal preference.
How you want to use the fluff determines whether to use 8 ounces or 16 ounces of cool whip. The cool whip adds a lighter, creamier flavor to the pumpkin. In a dip I like the stronger pumpkin flavor. In a pie I like the lighter cream pie flavors.
You can always start with 8 ounces, sample it and stir in more whipped topping as desired.
I always thought my Ten-Minute Berry Cheesecake was the easiest dessert to make in a graham cracker shell until my husband’s aunt shared this recipe with us. Both have the same steps, mix, chill and serve!

Step By Step Instructions

Sprinkle the instant pudding and pumpkin pie spice over the top.
Then add thawed Cool Whip and gently fold in the pumpkin pie mixture.
Keep folding the bottom and sides of the mixture into the center until the mixture is a uniform color. There should not be any streaks.
