Holiday Favorite- Butterscotch Cream Cheese Pie

Exchanging Holiday Favorites

1 1/2 cups or so GF graham cracker crumbs (I use Kinnikinnick graham style crumbs usually)
4-5 TBSP butter
1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar

1-8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1-14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
3/4-cup cold water
1-4-serv. package Jell-o brand instant butterscotch pudding
1-8 oz container Cool Whip – divided in half


1. Mix together about 1½ cups crumbs (depending on the size of the pie pan you choose – I usually use a 10-inch pan, so I use a more than you might want to with a 9-inch), butter, and sugar with fork until well blended. Also, watch the amount of butter you use. You can add a bit at a time so you have enough to just sort of moisten the crumbs to make them stick together. You don’t want too much butter where it’s greasy-like. And today I used S’moreables graham-style crackers because it’s all I could find, so I had to crush them myself. They are already pre-sweetened since they are almost like cookies, so I used only 1/4 cup of coconut sugar. You have to be the judge. I usually bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 8-10 minutes just to ‘set’ the crust and then let it cool a bit.
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy; gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. On low speed, beat in water and pudding and mix until smooth. Fold in half of the Cool Whip and pour into crust. Chill 2 hours or until set. Garnish with remaining Cool Whip and serve.
