Cream Cheese Pie

Cheese Pie made with chocolate pudding.


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. It's always requested when I attend potluck or family gatherings.

I have included a Cream Cheese Banana Split Pie recipe. Make it with instant puddings and bananas and top with Homemade Whipped Cream, pecans and Maraschino Cherries.

Then drizzle the top with yummy, Homemade Chocolate Sauce.

Cream Cheese Pie - Butter Pecan Crust

  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Mix together flour, butter, and pecans until crumbly.

Press into the bottom of a buttered 9" x 13" baking pan.

Bake in a preheated 350 F. oven for about 8 minutes or until just lightly browned. Set aside to cool.

Cream Cheese - First Layer

  • 16 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 8 oz. frozen whipped cream, thawed (can use Homemade Whipped Cream... recipe link below)

Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar on low to medium speed in a mixer.



High speed whips too much air into the filling

Fold in whipped cream and spread on thoroughly cooled crust. Refrigerate and chill about one hour.

Chocolate Pudding - Second Layer

  • 3 1/2 cups cold milk
  • 1 package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 package instant butterscotch pudding mix (do not substitute)

Mix puddings according to directions on package.

Spread on chilled cream cheese layer.

Whipped Cream Topping

  • 8 oz. frozen whipped cream, thawed (or use homemade recipe... link below)

Spread on pudding layer and chill several hours or overnight.

Cut into squares and serve.
