Chocolate Cream Pie

My daughter asked for a Chocolate Cream Pie for Christmas. Then she came down with the flu. I knew if I made it at that time, she would never even get a piece of it. She wouldn't even get to see it. So I held off. So today is Choclate Cream Pie day for me. I bought the premade Oreo Cookie pie crust. And I am gong to do something I never do when I am making the pie for her. I am going to use the cooking style boxed choclate pudding. I usually make my own chocolate pudding, but not today. I will make my own whipped cream though. She started this month's chemo last night. So I want to get it to her before she starts to feel the effects of the chemo.

She is gong to try to go back to work next month part-time. Twenty hours a week is all she thinks she can handle. She will be taking the chemo week off and work the other weeks. The Chocolate Cream Pie will help keep her spirits up.

Great news for your daughter, Addie. But now you have my mouth watering for a chocolate cream pie.

Mine too! I love CCP.

I made one about a month ago for my tennis team but hardly anyone would eat it after I told them it was made from tofu...

Would they have noticed if you hadn't told them?

Glad to hear about your daughter doing better, Addie!

I probably would have passed too. I can detect soy in just about anything and I don't enjoy it at all. This may be from having to exist on almost nothing but soy formula until I was 4, because I was allergic to so many foods.

I would love it too! I'm ok with the boxed pudding sometimes. Not a problem for me. I may have to make a pie too!

She's lucky to have a mom like you Addie! That cook and serve pudding is the next best thing to scratch, it'll be awesome!
