      For taste and reaction, I'd give this recipe 5 stars - everyone loved it. For the recipe and making it, maybe 3 stars. I didn't have wafer cookies, so I used graham crackers. Maybe that makes the amounts off, but I couldn't get a full crust out of it, and it took me 15 minutes of prep just to get the crust ready to bake. If I make it again (and I probably will), I'll just buy a low-calorie graham cracker crust from the store. For the filling, watch it carefully or it will scorch. I used skim milk, and it was fine. I also used cool whip free for topping. I ran the recipe through a calorie analyzer and came up with 309 calories per serving, and 11g of fat. Not horrible for a treat. My friend suggested that some chocolate - maybe syrup on top or shaved chocolate - would really compliment it, and I agree.

      I thought the crust was kind of hard to make. Other then that it was pretty good. My boyfriend loved it.
