Come Party With Me: Fast Thanksgiving — Dessert

If you are in a hurry for a Thanksgiving dessert, the easiest thing to do is be like Sandra Lee and take some help from the store. Use a ready-made pie crust, instant pudding mix, and caramel sauce to assemble a delicious turtle pumpkin pie. The recipe calls for cool whipped topping, but it really doesn't take that long to make.

If you have the time, I suggest whipping the cream with a couple tablespoons of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. To look at this easy recipe,

Mine's VERY similar, but it's more of a double layer cheese pie... but instead I whisk together 4oz cream cheese, 1 tablespoon milk and sugar and then gently stir in whipped topping and spread over the crust. THEN I do the pumpkin layer. And it sets for 4 hours. And then you can top with more whipped cream and/or caramel, pecans, etc. It's AMAZING and if you opt for fat free cream cheese and fat free coolwhip, it's actually a fairly healthy dessert! Aside from all the sugars:)
