FROZEN ROOT BEER FLOAT PIE

When I saw this recipe on a friend's post I knew I had to make it for my grandkids who love root beer floats!  To the best of my knowledge the credit for this recipe goes to Spending With Pennies.

Note: This is a Quick Fix Recipe that does require 8 hours freezer time!

1 carton (8-oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
3/4 cup cold root beer
1/2 cup milk
1 pkg (4-serving size) instant vanilla-flavored pudding mix
root beer extract (amount to suit taste as strength varies per brand)
1 graham cracker pie shell
8 maraschino cherries, drained completely on paper towels

In a large bowl combine the root beer, milk, and pudding mix; mix with wire whisk until it begins to thicken.

Fold in the root beer extract and half the whipped topping.  Spread the mixture into the pie shell.  Refrigerate for 5 minutes then top with the remaining half of the whipped topping.

Cut the pie into 8 wedges (this makes cutting the frozen pie easier).  Top each wedge with one of the cherries.

Cover pie and freeze overnight or 8 hours.

Serve frozen.
