Possum Pie

Ever heard of Possum Pie? (No, it doesn't contain roadkill - lol)

It's a family favorite at our house, even though the children gave me the typical oh-no-mom-is-making-something-weird-again look the first time I made it.

Once your family realizes that there's no possum in it, it will be a family favorite at your house, too.  :)

Here's the recipe...

2 pkgs. (3 oz. each)  cream cheese (softened)
3/4 c. powdered sugar
Mix these ingredients well and put in a 9" graham cracker crust

Sprinkle with 1/4 c. chopped pecans.

Next, combine 1/3 c. instant chocolate pudding mix, 1/4 c. instant vanilla pudding mix,  2 c. cold milk, and 3/4 t. vanilla extract in a bowl. Mix on low speed for 2 minutes. Spoon over pecans/cream cheese mixture.

Chill for at least 2 hours.  Top with 1/2 c. whipping cream (whipped) and sugar to taste. Garnish with powdered cocoa or pecan halves. 8 servings.

Have a blessed day, friends!

Dear friends,

Please pray for Noah. He has to have surgery this morning. It is (hopefully) going to be outpatient, but it could be an overnight stay, if necessary.
