“This recipe has the virtue of being great for ANY fruit, ANY occasion. It's fine for everything! Just after a daily meal or on a special occasion, this pie is the BOMB! Not only is good with any meal, but you can change the pie filling flavor with no problems! You can even make one pie one flavor, and the second pie a completely different flavor! You can use any kind of crust you want, from two pre-baked pie shells to graham crackers with a little sugar and melted butter (like for the no-bake cheesecake you buy in a box mix). You can even use ground Oreo cookies for the pie crusts and a chocolate pudding instead of the fruit mix!”
