This is an AWESOME tasting recipe!! I loved the whole cooking process of it. I'm in Texas too, and sometimes it's just too hot to bake in the oven, even during the holidays. I used a pre-prepared graham cracker crust so I didn't have to turn my oven on at all. The end product is SO TASTY..... Peggy, Thank You.....Laura from TX
