I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Rootbeer Float Pie

If you like root beer you are going to love this pie.   If you don't like the gingersnap crust, just use a graham cracker or vanilla wafer crust.

(serves 8)

*1 (1 8 ounce) container of cool whip, thawed
* 1/2 cup cream cheese, thawed or whipped
*1 cup root beer (I like to use IBC)
*1/2 cup heavy cream
*1 (3.4 ounce) vanilla instant pudding
*1 1/2 cups crushed (very fine) ginger snaps
*1/3 cup granulated sugar
*1/2 cup butter, melted

~Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
~In a medium bowl, mix crushed ginger snaps & sugar.
~Mix in melted butter, until mixture is mixed well.
~Press mixture into the bottom of an 8-10 inch cake pan.
~Bake for 5 minutes, remove and let the crust cool completely.
~In a large bowl, whip cream cheese until soft.
~Mix in pudding, heavy cream & root beer
~Whisk in until mixture starts to thicken up.
~Pour evenly over ginger snap crust.
~Cover and freeze for 8-12 hours.
