These two recipes (crust & filling) came out of the book, American Pie by Teresa Kennedy. This was the cook book the boys got me for Valentine’s Day this past February.
I started making this pie by myself, but once the boys noticed the ingredients for a graham cracker crust, they all quickly showed culinary interest. I thought it was cute they all wanted to help and fitting since, after all, this was a recipe from their book.
- I usually follow a different graham cracker crust recipe, but because this one was in the book, I thought I would try it out. I found it odd that it did not require me to bake the graham cracker crust, but instead chill it. Next time I will definitely stick with baking. Although it was delicious (who doesn’t love graham crackers, butter and sugar), it was very crumbly and completely fell apart when cut and served.
- I was expecting the recipe for the strawberry banana yogurt pie to require me to freeze it after preparation. It did not, but I think it would have been better frozen and firm.
- The taste was light and the texture was light. It was similar to eating whipping cream out of a bowl. Had the crust been crunchy and the yogurt been frozen it would have scored much higher in my book. But for now it rates as a 6.
