I've never used fruit cocktail to make a pie before, but I will be again because this was amazing!! So tasty and easy to make. Love the fact you don't waste the juice from the tinned fruit either, makes the most amazing sauce for the fruit!

OK, I'm loving this recipe, but it's not going to help me lose weight, is it? LOL (Suggestion: Increase sugar to 1/2 cup.)
