Cream Cheese Pie is an old fashioned recipe of cream cheese filling layered with instant chocolate pudding and butterscotch pudding in a butter pecan crust and topped with whipped cream.
Originally, this scrumptious pie was called Robert Redford Pie.
The recipe is always requested when I take it to a potluck or family gatherings.
I have included a Cream Cheese Banana Split Pie recipe.
Make it with instant puddings and bananas.
Top with Homemade Whipped Cream, pecans and Maraschino Cherries.
Then drizzle the top with yummy, Homemade Chocolate Sauce.

Bake and cool on rack in pan.
Layer Cream Cheese filling, prepared Chocolate Filling, then Vanilla Filling in that order, on top of crust.
Arrange a layer of the sliced bananas on top of the Vanilla Pie Filling.

Sprinkle with Pecans and Cherries. Drizzle Chocolate Syrup over all.
Refrigerate several hours before serving.
Refrigerate any leftovers if you have them.
William Lawrence an American dairy man living in Chester, New York, accidently stumbled upon a way to make cream cheese in 1872.
Mr. Lawrence was actually trying to reproduce a French cheese called Neufchatel.
Two years later, William Lawrence started calling his newly developed cream cheese by the name Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese.
