Triple Layer Pumpkin Spice Pie

Anyone can make this simple no-bake pie. Anyone. I don’t know if I didn’t get enough of Grannie’s homemade pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving or what? This has similar flavors though. Of course, it isn’t as good as her authentic pie, but it is satisfying!

I typically stay away from boxes mixes and fresh is better, yadda, yadda, yadda. But, I have to say I seriously LOVE me some Jell-O pudding and Cool Whip. Sue me. It is just simple, quick, easy and tasty. We can eat it once in a while!
