Notes

This is a light, fluffy dessert that I had at my mother's house last week. It is a cream cheese based pie. It's a delicious combination, very summer-y tasting, and not too heavy after a good supper. This pineapple pie uses a graham cracker crust, which you can make yourself, or you can buy a store bought graham crust
