This fluffy no-bake pie is full of old-fashioned flavor, with only a fraction of the work. Because it uses instant pudding, it's ready in just minutes. —Perlene Hoekema, Lynden, Washington

"Followed the recipe and the taste was as good as the ingredient. The pie did not stand up and was soupie. Not something I would ever serve to guest. What went wrong?"

"This is very good and easy to make, but I also use banana pudding in place of the vanilla. Gives it a more banana flavor. And I use the extra creamy whipped topping."

"I am really surprised to find that many of you don't realize that one cup can be by weight (8 oz) or by volume ( one full measuring cup). Not everything that is measured is by weight alone. That is how you can have 3 cups of whipped topping in a 12 oz. container. Spoon it into a one cup measuring cup, level off the top, then scoop it into your recipe. Repeat 2 more times. That equals the 3 cups needed for your recipe! And use a "dry" measuring cup (no pour spout) because there is a big difference between a dry measuring cup & one for liquids."
