Cherry Icebox Pie


My son always wanted this pie for his 'birthday cake'. This pie was originally an unbaked pie but with raw eggs being iffy nowadays we now bake it. You can also use prepared graham cracker crusts or baked and cooled pastry shells instead of the vanilla wafer crusts, if you like.
