This was first introduced to my son by his girlfriend Elizabeth on their first dinner date. My son TJ made the Spaghetti dinner and Elizabeth made the pie. I had a piece of this pie the next day and it is wonderful. I hope you enjoy this as much as my son and I have.

This is a great pie. The crust is new to me and I just had to give it a try. The filling for the pie is a very, very old recipe and as far as I know orginated from a pie called "Cherry O Cream Pie". If you check on Zaar, it's #230150. I have probably been making this for 40 years. The only problem I had with the crust is that if it's not served and eaten within the first few hours after adding the filling, the crust gets a little soft and is hard to cut into nice pieces. But my grandkids loved the "cocoa krispies"! I might also mention that almost any pie filling is good spread on top -- so if cherries aren't your "cup of tea" -- pick another fruit. I've also made these as parfaits. In place of the "crust", I've used granola or even nuts -- then topping it off with a little whipped cream. The filling in this pie is really very creamy, rich and so, so good. Whatever you do, do NOT omit the lemon juice. I'm glad I stumbled on this recipe because I had almost forgotten about the old recipe I had.
