Ghost Ranch Pudd'n Pie...

Ghost Ranch Pudd'n Pie is a family must have...young & old alike love this light and creamy dessert. I make this often at the summer ranch or family gatherings....I usually have the ingredients on hand & all ingredients are easy to obtain just about anywhere! Hence the reason I like to make it at the summer ranch!!! We may be remote but the basics can be easlily found in the town near by. The name was chosen by the grandkids when they were younger, due to the old ranch we pass on the way to our ranch! The kids have always called it the Ghost Ranch!

   from PineCreekStyle...The CattleQueen Cooks!


  • 1 package of Golden Oreo Cookies, Crushed coarsely in a zip lock style bag with a rolling pin
  • 1 package, 8 ounce size of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of powdered vanilla, optional
  • 1 large tub of Cool Whip, 16 ounces, softened, divided in half
  • 2 small package or 1 large package of Instant Chocolate pudding
  • Approximately 3 cups of cold milk or the amount listed on the pudding boxes
  • A chocolate bar for garnishing the top of the dessert, grated or chopped

  1. Crush the oreo cookies, place in the bottom of a 9x13 pan, *I love to use foil pans for easy clean up
  2. Next, cream together the creamed cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and half of the cool whip. Blend together well. Layer on top of the crumbled cookies
  3. Mix the pudding as directed with the milk, it will thicken quickly. If you want it thicker, cool for 5-10 minutes in the refrigerator
  4. Layer the pudding on top of the cream cheese mixture
  5. Use the remaining Cool whip to frost the top of the dessert
  6. Garnish the top of the pudd'n pie with grated or crumbled chocolate bar pieces
  7. Refridgerate the Pudd'n Pie for at least an hour, before serving. Serve with a spoon onto the dish or bowl.
  8. Notes: *Sugar free pudding may be used!
An excellant choice of dessert anytime of the year!
