This was so good, I had to throw it out. Seriously - there was half a pie left after dinner and I found myself alone with it the next day. It had to go - I would have eaten the entire half. My husband was furious. OK, I ate half the half before I tossed it.
This would have 5 stars if the original had called for graham crackers instead of gingersnaps for the crumb crust. The gingersnaps are tasty but simply too hard to make eating the pie easy. Otherwise, I was somewhat addicted to this pie and it was eaten (all by me!) in about 3 days.
Okay, this is the second time I've reviewed this recipe. The first time, I was really torn but finally settled on 4 stars instead of 5. It was a lovely dessert -- light,creamy, tangy -- just delightfully 'summery'. The only thing that kept me from saying it was perfect was the crust. Despite the fact that the flavor was delicious, it was awfully hard to cut and to eat. Well, fast-forward to tonight, when I got a phone call from a guest. (It was a fairly big meal, and she had declined dessert, so I'd insisted she take a piece home.) Hey, when a woman with impeccable manners giggles and tells you it was so good she gave in to temptation and licked the plate, you *have* to award that 5th star, right? It's like a moral obligation or something. :) Thanks, SaraFish!
