Recipe by cam970 Moore

This has been a family favorite for a long time. It is great as a dessert or a side dish. We often take this to a picnic or bring a dish type of gathering and it's ALWAYS a big hit with kids and adults alike! You might want to bring an extra container of Cool Whip and add a dollop to each serving.

Top Review by Loving Italian

Made this for a small group meeting and didn't have a whole lot of time, so instead of baking my own crust, I simply put everything in a graham cracker pie crust that I had on hand already, then put in the freezer until it set. It tasted fantastic and everyone kept saying how good it was.
