Ingredients
  

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs 14-16 cracker sheets
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp melted butter preferably salted

Filling and Topping

  • 1 pkg cook and serve butterscotch pudding mix 3.5 oz
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2-3 ripe plums halved, pitted, and cut into medium-thin wedges
  • 3 tbsp wildflower honey

Instructions
 

  • Crush graham crackers inside of a plastic bag by rolling pin or pulse in a food processor. Combine thoroughly with sugar and melted butter. Transfer mixture to pie pan, pressing up and into corners. Place in refrigerator to cool.
  • Add pudding mix and milk to a large saucepan. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a slow boil. Remove from heat and let cool for 3-5 minutes uncovered, then cover with plastic wrap directly on pudding's surface to avoid a film from forming. Let pudding cool to room temperature.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, whip 1/2 cup heavy cream until firm peaks form. Fold into pudding mix, then pour filling into crust. Top with plum slices — covering top completely or arranging fruit in a spiral pattern. Freeze pie for at least 3 hours to set.
  • Using the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream, whip until soft peaks form, then add honey. Beat for an additional minute, then swirl atop pie. Let individual slices thaw for 2-3 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • The entire pie (whipped cream topping included) will last up to 4 days in the freezer. The texture is like a frosty ice ice cream. 
  • Use a sharp knife to cut slices, as they can be a bit hard straight from freezer. 
  • Once pie is completely thawed, do not re-freeze. It's preferable to cut a slice a or two at a time and place the remaining pie back into freezer.
