Gingerbread Cream Pie

You guys all these cream pie recipes!!! OK OK wait, first.

My Gilmore Girls binging is coming to a close…it’s another show I can add to the archives of my brain, next to Friends, Friday Night Lights, Monk, Friends again and Dawson’s Creek. Now, I’m left with all of my kids favorite Netflix shows to stream while I edit photos, do dishes, come up with new recipes, and grow another child. And as much as I love DinoTrux and Larva, I think I’d rather find another show to get sucked into. Tell me all your addicting shows. Share the love. Do it because you care. Comment below 🙂

Speaking of addicting things: download the game Patchmania to your iphone or tablet or mobile whatever. You will thank me later, man. It’s crazy good. Brooke and I both play together on the couch for a few minutes everyday after she gets home from school. We’re on level 72, incase you were wondering. #notashamed

Also addicting: all these pies I’m making.

I’m on a kick, yo.

Gingerbread Cream Pie

The crazy thing about this Gingerbread Cream Pie is it actually tastes like a soft and sweet gingerbread cookie in pie form. It’s BANANAS.

Also: it takes 10 minutes to whip up. OMG.

It’s another pie to add to my “oh crap, what should I make for Thanksgiving dessert” archives next to my Super Speedy Chocolate Pie and my Pumpkin Cream Pie. It’s for all you folks out there who get wrapped up in the holiday festivities and let a thing or two slip your minds. I feel your pain!! So print all these cream pie recipes out and have them handy because we are only days away!

    Sooo good! I made a ginger snap/graham cracker crust by running a bag of ginger snaps together with graham crumbs and a bit of sugar through the food processor until well blended. Reserved about a dozen ginger snaps to place on each slice. This is so “moreish”! There’s a pic over on my FB page.

    The flavor of the pie is 5 stars for sure!! However, I refrigerated it for hours and it still didn’t have much structure – was too soft. Would love some recommendations on how to fix that

    I had this pie saved for years but never got around to making it. I craved that gingerbread flavor but didn’t have to right opportunity to make a whole pie. Last year, I had a reception for my elopement. This was happening, except for the fact that I needed small bites and not a pie. I served it in mini dessert cups layered with crushed gingersnaps instead of in a pie crust. It was phenomenal! Making it again tomorrow. So delicious. Thank you for sharing!

    We love this pie. I made it for a church function and am making it today for a family Christmas gathering. Very good; very easy.

    This pie was absolutely delicious! My book club of eight women devoured it! No one could believe it was instant pudding in the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

    Making this tonight. Am I reading correctly that only 4 ounces (1/2cup) of the cream is used in the pie? The rest goes on top?

    I just made this and it is SO yummy! Tastes just as good as the pictures make it look! Thanks for the recipe!

    Also, I second Parenthood! And I love New Girl! I go back and forth between that and Friends!

    I am making this dessert for Thanksgiving, and of course, have to have a taste. Absolutely delicious!! Definitely a keeper. Keep these awesome recipes coming! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Since I finished my holiday grocery shopping and now see this amazing pie recipe that would be a wonderful addition to the traditional pumpkin…could I use Cool Whip instead of the heavy cream/powdered sugar since I already have it? I know it won’t be as pretty on the outside. But would the taste be similar?

    Thank you!

  16. Sarah K

    This pie sounds amazing! I used to be the dessert maker for all events before my 4 kiddos…this will be my re-entry into dessert making:).
    You need to watch Parenthood! Such an amazing show…you will laugh and cry at every episode.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I couldn’t get the pie to set. The milk/pudding never seemed to thicken after letting it set. Even after putting the pie in the fridge over night it didn’t set. I even froze it and defrosted it, but it did not have the cream texture and wouldn’t hold. It was just melting. 🙁

    Loving the pies and such, but not the way to print now…clicking on the print icon in your recipe gives me your whole blog notes….So have to go to orginal sourse, highlight what I what to print and then, just have your recipe…

    This looks delicious! I love the show ‘the 100’ it’s always doing things to surprise you, though its got some bloody parts in it.

    This gingerbread pie immediately grabs my attention! It looks like it would be delicious with a big mug of coffee! You’re family is so cute, btw. I don’t comment much but I love following you!
    Happy Thanksgiving,

    Haha, I’m on my 3rd round of Gilmore Girls since it showed up on Netflix. In fact, I’m shamelessly watching it right now! LOL! I’m loving all the flavors in this easy pie!

    WOW! Here’s one of my desserts for Thanksgiving. And there’s a little girl in my house who will be 5 on Thanksgiving – I can see this with a “5” candle in it. Thanks. Patti

    Hm–I don’t love gingerbread, but your recipes haven’t let me down yet. So I might have to give this a try.

    Have you ever watched Longmire? It’s really really good.

    Oh! Oh! And I loved Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. One time, Tyler had a game night, and I watched almost an entire season while he was gone.

  24. Anna (Hidden Ponies)

    Oooh, I love all things gingerbread, this is a must-try! As for shows, maybe not the best idea while you’re baby-growing, but Call the Midwife hit me with all the feelings!

  25. KIM A

    ooh my husband loves gingerbread! I just might add this to our Holiday dessert bar! I highly recommend White Collar, Parenthood, In Plain Sight, The Closer, West Wing or How I Met Your Mother.

  26. Sydney Kanjuparamban

    You should watch United States of Tara! I had never heard of it until i saw it on my Netflix recommended page– so SO good! I breezed through 3 short seasons in two weeks… Oops!

    My all time favorite binge watch is Downton Abbey and Mad Men. Here are a few more: Nurse Jackie, House of Cards, Sons of Anarchy, Homeland, The Good Wife.
