A delightful pie, as the name suggests. Great dessert and not too heavy. No one would ever believe much of the filler is saltine crackers, and it makes its own crust!

The only thing I do different is use ritz crackers, broke into small pieces. I first tasted this at a piccadily resturant.

I substituted walnuts and I would not recommend that. The taste would be much better with pecans I'm sure. I used splenda instead of white sugar but kept the brown sugar and that worked great. When I remake this with pecans I'll add stars.
