Pumpkin Butterscotch No Bake Pie

Each Thanksgiving, I’m on a quest for easy variations of classic desserts.  This little pie right here was just that.  It’s a super easy twist on a pumpkin pie…that won’t be taking up oven room.  When I saw it in my 101 Autumn Recipe book, I knew I had to try it.  There is just no way you can mess this dessert up.  No way.  This Thanksgiving, bring a pie.  Bring this pie.
Shopping List
1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping (not frozen, it can come out of the fridge but not frozen)
1 cup canned pumpkin (I used basic Libby’s pumpkin)
1 small (3.4 oz) package of  instant butterscotch pudding mix
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (use cinnamon if you don’t have any)
1 (9 inch) graham cracker crust
In a mixing bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients until blended.  Spoon mixture into your prepared pie crust.  Cover and refrigerate at least two hours before slicing and serving.  (I let my pie sit 24 hours and it was delicious!)
Slice and enjoy!
This is the perfect simple dessert for your holiday season…and it’s so yummy too!

It’s November!  Thanksgiving will be here soon!

    I'm excited to try this since it's so easy. But I have to admit confusion on this ingredient: 1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping (not frozen, it can come out of the fridge but not frozen). So purchase it frozen, but then store it in the fridge?

    Shay, do you use a mixer to combine these ingredients or do you mix by hand?

    Cool Whip is purchased in the freezer department but can be kept in either the freezer or the fridge. For this recipe, make sure it comes out of the fridge because it will be much easier to stir. And no mixer required, just stir by hand! All of the ingredients incorporate easily!

    This looks amazing. I'll have to try.

    Shay, I'm so excited — I just made this for a girls night I'm headed to tomorrow evening, and my husband and daughter attacked the bowl! They could not get enough of it. I think this is going to be a huge hit here! Thank you so much!

    I wasn't able to find instant butterscotch pudding but used instant cheesecake pudding instead and it was really good!! I still would like to try the butterscotch if I can ever find it 🙂

    I wonder if chocolate pudding would be good to try instead of butterscotch?

    The only small jello pudding size I can find is 1.0 oz. so us three of those boxes?

    I think you're looking at the prepared Jello pudding. This is the small boxed kind that isn't prepared (just the powder) and the smallest one is 3 oz.
