For a swift sweet treat, Carol Heppner spreads a homemade graham cracker crust with canned pie filling, then tops it with a fun marshmallow and whipped cream layer. "Try it with blueberry pie filling instead," recommends the Caronport, Saskatchewan cook.
My grandmother passed down this recipe to my mother, who in turn passed it down to me. Now my daughter is making it for her family. With a graham cracker crust, custard filling and meringue topping, this pie was one of my favorites when I was growing up and it still is today.
I can whip up this pie in minutes using the microwave, so it's great for drop-in guests. People are always surprised I can serve them a slice so quickly.—Shirley Pochipinski, Prince Albert, Saskatchewan
Treating yourself to this indulgent dessert won't give you the blues later on! Even with a fabulous fruit filling and crumb topping, this light recipe keeps fat and calories to a minimum. Serve the pie warm, advises our Test Kitchen staff...and expect plenty of compliments!
I knew just what to serve for dessert at the theme party I gave for my sister's birthday. When she was growing up during the 1950s, she preferred this creamy sweet-tart treat that our mom made over any kind of cake.
