Pistachio Cream Pie
Once, I was making a pudding and coconut pie for my mother's uncle and decided to toss in some pineapple and cream cheese. Though everyone else really liked it, he didn't, and called it 'Yucka Pie'. My husband and kids love it, though. and I'm happy because they're getting even a little more fruit without realizing it!—Lucille M. Gendron, Pelham, New Hampshire
