Made this for Mother's Day and it was a big hit. The crust is basically shortbread. You could easily change up the pudding to chocolate and it would still be great. Read More

Mmm... this is very good. I made it in a pie plate and cut in half b/c I didn't have enough to do the whole recipe. I probably used more nuts in the crust. I did enough nuts and cherries to cover the top. Will definitely make this again soon-- the whole recipe! Read More

Best pie I've had in a long time! I love creamy no-bake pies and this one was perfect. Instead of making the crust I just used a graham cracker crust. I skipped the nuts on top and instead chopped a jar of maraschino cherries in my food chopper and stirred them into the whipped cream before topping the pie with it. To. Die. For. Read More
