Recipe--Millionaire Pie

Spring--complete with all the weather ups and downs--might be making her return to the Hoosier state at last.  When the weather warms up, it's nice to find no-bake recipes that allow your kitchen (and house) to stay as cool as possible so that your people (and dog) can also stay as cool as possible.

Browsing through Pinterest last night, I came upon this recipe that made my mouth water instantly.  It couldn't be used as a competitive baking entry because of all that perishable whipped topping and the refrigeration requirement.  But it sure would win a blue ribbon in my book!

Millionaire Pie from www.spendwithpennies.com

MILLIONAIRE PIE

1 prepared graham cracker crust
1 C sweetened flaked coconut
1-15.25 oz can crushed pineapple, well drained
1 C maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
1/2 C chopped pecans
1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
5 T lemon juice
1 T maraschino cherry juice
1 1/2 C whipped topping, plus extra for garnish if desired

In a large bowl, combine coconut, crushed pineapple, maraschino cherries, pecans, sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, and maraschino cherry juice. Gently fold in whipped topping.  Pour into crust. Top with additional whipped topping and cherries if desired. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.  Yields 1 pie.

As always--enjoy!
