Oh, Goodies!

Triple-Layer Pumpkin Spice Piefor some reason, this recipe isn't on their website. Since I picked it up at the grocery store, I am going to type it out for you.
Jell-o has a new flavor pudding... Pumpkin Spice. OMG, girls.
So here it is:
2 Cups cold Milk
2pkg (4 serving size each) Jell-o Pumpkin Spice Flavor Instant Pudding and Pie Filling
1/4 tsp. ground Cinnamon
1 tub (8oz) Cool Whip, thawed
1 Honey Maid Graham Pie Crust (6oz)
1/2 c pecan halves
1Tbsp honey
Beat milk, dry pudding mixes and cinnamon with a wire whisk until well blended. Spread 1 1/2 cups onto bottom of crust.
Add 1 1/2 cups of whipped topping to remaining pudding mixture; stir gently. Spoon over layer in crust; top with remaining whipped topping.
Refrigerate 1 hour. meanwhile, cook pecans and honey in skillet on medium-low heat 2-4 minutes or until pecans are carmelized, stirring frequently. Spread onto sheet of wax paper separating larger clusters. cool. sprinkle over pie just before serving. store leftovers in refrigerator.
Makes 10 servings, one slice each.
I didn't bother carmelizing the pecans because I knew that it wasn't going to get eaten up right away and I find that carmelized nuts don't like to be kept in the fridge very long.
The Mister gave this pie very high marks.
"Better than pumpkin pie." I believe is what he said.
I should mention, he doesn't like Nutmeg. This is heavy on cinnamon. That contributes. I usually make pumpkin pie with Mace in place of the Nutmeg. It tastes the same to me, but it tastes better to him. Whatever.
Either way, this pie was ridiculously simple and super tasty.
I finished my sister's blue socks. And I am working on another blue pair for a gift. These are of the yarn that I bought in Traverse City. It is an Opal Rainforest color. I haven't knit with Opal before (I don't think) but I like it a lot! The colors are awesome, I don't mind that it is blue (so much.) Part of the fun is that I am doing this pair on Magic Loop with Addi Turbos. Hard not to like the knitting with good tools and ingredients.
I am thinking of some more Holiday knitting. Um, don't mention the Mister's sweater, 'k? I know that I haven't touched it in weeks and could have been done by now. shhhhh.
The point is that I am getting ready to spread knitterly love and holiday cheer all around- not just in my house.
Oh, and I am getting close to finishing a bag (check out this gallery!)that needs to be felted... any volunteers for helping me with that? I am seriously contemplating asking the Mister to buy me a top loading wash machine out of the pennysaver just so I can felt. But that would be a smidge silly, don't you think?

I will help, but if you don't want to wait until you see me again, check out Betz White's blog, she talks about felting in a top-loader (just recently) so I know it can be done. http://blog.betzwhite.com/

Thanks so much for posting this pie recipe. I bought two boxes of this pudding at the grocery store because of the picture of the pie on the display. There weren't any recipes with them; it just said to go to their website for it. And like you said - it isn't on their website! Now I can make it!
