Million Dollar Pie

"This is a great recipe for a quick pie that does taste like a million bucks. My daughter has been making this every Thanksgiving since she was 11. Very easy preparation. The recipe calls for 2 graham cracker crusts, but we have also made it with the chocolate crumb crusts as well. They are delicious as well."

  1. Love this pie recipe. Taste like a million dollars. I added 1/2 can pineapple tidbits in.
  2. Before my mother passed away she would always make three of these pies, I try to make them every year, they're sooo good.
  3. Alice yes you have to drain pineapples that's why your pie is not firming up.
  4. its even better with a can of mandarin oranges added to above recipe
  5. Runny and didn’t make a pie slice. More like pudding with graham cracker crust.


  1. Add vanilla extract and on some occasions I may add rum extract. And I always add cream cheese. I prefer the whipped Philadelphia brand.
