Mud Pie

This is the James' Family traditional pie that is made every year for Thanksgiving. Rick grew up with it and it sometimes doubled as his birthday cake (since often his birthday fell on Thanksgiving). My mom was always so sweet to make it when we came to her house for dinner so that Rick would feel at home. It's a big hit with my kids and it's always top on the Thanksgiving pie list.

2 pie crusts, baked
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
2 c. cool whip
1 lg. chocolate instant pudding
1 lg. vanilla instant pudding
5 c. milk
cool whip

Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and 2 c. of cool whip together until smooth. Spread a layer of mixture on the bottom of the 2 pie crusts. Mix together both packages of pudding with the milk. Pour pudding on top of cream cheese layer. Top pies with cool whip. Chill before serving.
