The original recipe calls for whipped topping, an 8 oz. tub, but I have been trying not to eat that chemical concoction anymore, even though it is WAY cheaper than whipping cream. If you make this, feel free to use either one. I have both options listed in the recipe. And of course, you can use store bought crust as well. I did this time. I have only put the cinnamon in once. The kids didn't really like it so I haven't done that since, but it does taste good.
One last thing, there were not nearly enough peaches in the one I made, so I think next time, I will do the layers like this: 1/3 of the cream, peach layer, 1/3 of the cream, peach layer, then the last of the cream.
Dreamy Peach Pie – adapted from The Pampered Chef®
6 medium peaches, sliced or 2 large cans of peach slices* (maybe three cans or 10 peaches, if you want 2 layers of peaches)
1 cup cold milk
1 package (3.4oz) vanilla instant pudding
1 container (8oz) whipped topping, thawed
or about 4 cups of whipped cream (beat 2 cups heavy whipping cream with 6 TBSP granulated sugar to yield about 4 3/4 cups. I put it in an empty 8 oz whipped topping tub to check that it was the same volume.)
½ tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
8 honey graham crackers
3 tbsp sugar
¼ cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350. Finely crush graham crackers in plastic bag with rolling pin to yield 1 ¼ cup crumbs. Combine crumbs and sugar in 1 QT bowl. Stir in melted butter. Press into bottom and up sides of 9” pie plate to form crust. Bake 10 minutes. Cool Completely.
In 1 quart bowl, whisk pudding into milk. Stir until mixture begins to thicken. Fold into whipped topping. Spread about 1/3 of pudding mixture onto bottom of crust. Top with half the peach slices and sprinkle with half the cinnamon; repeat. Top with remaining pudding mixture. Chill at least 4 hours. To serve, slice into wedges.
*You may want to slice the canned slices a little thinner.
