This recipe comes from my coworker, Jeana. She said you can play around with the pie filling topping by trying Blueberry Pie filling, Apple Pie filling, or what kids especially like: Jello as a topping for this pie. She also noted you can exchange (or add) Macadamia nuts, pecans, or any of your favorite nuts in the crust.

This is her late mom’s recipe, so it’s very special to her. Lots of love in this one. It’s really, really ono! A must-try!

    The Tasty Island reader L said, “Please tell Jeana thank you for the awesome recipe you posted. I made it once to test it out and my family  loved it so much! Winnaz! I’ll be making it for two family potlucks. Also, almonds work well in the crust. Mwah to Jeana for sharing it!  I hate baking and have you checked out the prices of cakes at Zippy’s lately? I’m saving me some bucks by making the pie.” ~ L
