Pumpkin Fluff Pie
I try to make a few recipes for every big holiday meal. Thanksgiving can get a bit hectic having a small kid, trying to travel and go to multiple parties on the same day and cook.
This Pumpkin Fluff is perfect easy Thanksgiving dessert recipe to have ready! It 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 out on the dessert table.
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. Pumpkin Fluff Pie can be made in 5 minutes!
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 cool whip as desired.
What You’ll Need
- Cool Whip
- Instant Vanilla Pudding
- Can of Pumpkin Puree
- Pumpkin Pie Spice

My husband’s aunt shared this handwritten recipe with us. I love a recipe with 3 steps in the instructions!
