My husband and I both work full-time, and taxiing our two teenagers around town leaves me little time in the kitchen. Using prepared graham cracker crust and canned pie filling, I can extend a no-bake mix to make two light, fancy-looking pies in less than 15 min. -Pam Noffke, Tyler, Texas

"Im only going to rate this according to MY Mama's recipe, NOT the original poster's. Im not sure where the original poster got this recipe from, but my mama has been making this pie since i was knee high to a bull frog ;) of course the no bake cheese cake mix is NOT necessary to make this pie superb! AND it ONLY feeds 12-16 people if you only want them to get a sample taste of it. Really it only feeds about 6 for a small piece. ;)"
