Brownie Bottom Pudding Pie

I've been wanting to make this for a long time. It just looked so good! And it is. I think it's one of the best things I've ever made. My mom brought this to Thanksgiving at my uncles house and she said it was a hit! She said it was gone pretty quickly, but she brought me back a piece.

I'm so glad I got to try it, it tastes amazing! I've never made a pie that had a brownie bottom. Next time, I think I might try making a Blondie bottom with a different type of pudding filling. The best part is, it takes almost no effort to make! I'll for sure be making this again.

  5. This sounds dangerous...especially if you made it with a blondie bottom!! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I was laughing because my name is Danielle and I'm blond also...sounds like we have at least three things in common (including a love for baking)! Glad you found my blog, and I will be adding yours to my list!

  6. Wow, are you some kind of baker!! This looks amazing. My kids will think they have died and went to heaven if I made this for them. Christmas dessert for sure.

  8. great recipe and love anything with cool whip in it...! thanks for posting over my way as well....appreciated :)

  9. Mmm, a blondie bottom would be delicious! Maybe a banana or butterscotch filling?

  10. I like making some of these easy commercial recipes from Kraft, Jello, etc.. sometimes. I recently made a Triple Layer Pumpkin Spice Pie from Jello. I found the recipe in the grocery store. The brownie bottom of this recipe looks good with the top. Knowing me, I would probably drench the top in chocolate and caramel sauce too!

  11. This looks amazing! Right up my street, I'll have to bookmark the recipe. Thanks for visiting my blog. X
