Posted on 02 August 2013 by KWBG

Frozen Rootbeer Float Pie by CK
1 tub (8 ounces) Cool Whip, thawed
3/4 cup cold diet or regular root beer
1/2 cup fat-free or regular milk
Root Beer Extract to taste. (strength can vary greatly by brand)
1 package (4 serving size) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 graham cracker crust
8 Maraschino cherries
Combine the root beer, milk and pudding mix in a large bowl.Mix with a whisk until it begins to thicken. Fold in half of the whipped topping and desired amount of root beer extract. Start with just a little of the extract and give it a taste. You can continue adding more until desired flavor is reached. Spread into the pie crust. Refrigerate for 5 minutes. Top with remaining whipped topping.
Slice the pie into 8 even slices (this makes it really easy to cut when it’s frozen). Add a cherry on each slice.Freeze 8 hours or overnight. Note: This pie will seem a little bit runny prior to freezing. Prior to freezing, slice the pie, this makes for easy serving once ready!
