Servings 8 slices


  • 9 ounces premade graham cracker crust
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3.9 ounces instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 7 ounces marshmallow fluff
  • 8 ounces cool whip, thawed
  • whipped topping, optional garnish


  • Using a medium-sized mixing bowl and a handheld electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the cream cheese for 1 to 1½ minutes until smooth.
  • Sprinkle the instant pudding mix over the cream cheese and continue mixing for 1 more minute until well combined.
  • Add the marshmallow fluff and continue mixing just until incorporated.
  • Fold in the thawed Cool Whip.
  • Spread the Cool Whip mixture into the pre-made graham cracker crust. Chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours to overnight. Slice into eight servings and garnish the outer edges of the slices with whipped topping, if you wish.


  • This recipe needs to chill in the fridge for about 8 hours before serving. This is a great recipe to make the day before so that it is ready when you need it.
  • Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature to avoid lumps in your creamy filling.
  • If your pie crust is in a foil tin, we’d recommend sitting the whole thing inside a glass pie pan to give it a bit more stability.
  • You can use the protective clear plastic cover as a top to the pie. Simply remove the paper insert and flip it over to form a dome.
