Cream Pies That Are Quick and Easy

These are great cream pies to make with your children and/or grandchildren. My grandson especially likes to help make the Hershey Chocolate Pie.

Bake your pie shells ahead of time. When you are ready, have the children join you in making the fillings. Then put in the refrigerator until dessert time. They will be so proud that they helped.

Hershey Chocolate Pie

5 Hershey bars with almonds
17 marshmallows
1/2 cup milk
1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
1 baked pie shell

Break up chocolate bars to remove almonds. Cut almonds in pieces and reserve a few for the top of the pie. Put chocolate, almonds, marshmallows and milk in top of double boiler and cook until melted and slightly thickened. Cool. Whip cream and fold into first mixture. Pour into baked pie shell and refrigerate until set.

Pineapple Cream Pie

8 oz. can crushed pineapple (drained)
1 can condensed milk
1 medium size Cool Whip
5 tbsp. lemon juice or 2 lemons
1 9-inch baked pie crust or graham cracker crust

Mix ingredients and pour into pie crust. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Blueberry Banana Cream Pie

2 or 3 sliced bananas
2 baked pie shells
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1 9-10 oz. Cool Whip
1 cup sugar
1 can blueberry pie filling, chilled

Line cooked pie shells with sliced bananas. Mix softened cream cheese, cool whip and sugar with mixer until smooth. Put over bananas. Top with cooled pie filling. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Makes 2 pies.

I am a mother of three and a grandmother of three and I have been baking for my family and friends for over 40 years.
