Cranberry Ice Cream Pie

This recipe was one my mother served many times during the year, but always at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It became everyone’s special treat.—Geordyth Sullivan, Miami, Florida

Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 3/4 cup cold 2% milk
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 can (14 ounces) jellied cranberry sauce, cut into slices
  • 2 cups whipped topping

    This looks good but DH does not like any red foods. I'd like to make with something that isn't red but need some help with suggestions. Any comments? Thanks
