Maple nut goodies have been a favorite candy of mine since I was a child, and I think the flavors taste just as great in a pie! This pie freezes well, too—just take it out to thaw 30 minutes before serving. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado
Butter-flavored crackers make the crunchy crust for this frozen take on coconut cream pie. "A mixer works great to easily combine the ice cream, milk and pudding mix," suggests Carol Beamer of Glenville, West Virginia. Try sprinkling chopped nuts or cracker crumbs on top instead of the coconut.
Each bite of this light and fluffy pie will nearly melt in your mouth. The cracker-crumb crust holds a smooth vanilla filling topped with an airy meringue and a sprinkling of more crumbs. Everyone will crave a second slice!

The buttery crust of this fruit-filled treat melts in your mouth. You can substitute sliced apples or peaches for the plums with great results. I've used this crust with blueberries, too.
