Hi BakersDozen,

This sounds like a recipe my hubby would go nuts over as well! I've yet to find instant pudding mix in Ireland (I'm from Canada originally) and I would have never guessed what a damper that can put on so many recipes. Sometimes I can use "Birds custard powder" but it just isn't the same. I wonder what I could use in place of it here, because I would love to make this for him.
Oh yikes, just read the recipe again, we don't have Cool Whip here either (yes, it is very, very taxing on my nerves to try and find things I am sooooo used to), well perhaps I can take the key ingredients and the idea behind the pie and attempt to create my own version. Either way thanks for the inspiration
