"My son always wanted this pie for his 'birthday cake'. This pie was originally an unbaked pie but with raw eggs being iffy nowadays we now bake it. You can also use prepared graham cracker crusts or baked and cooled pastry shells instead of the vanilla wafer crusts, if you like." — PSTEWART

my husband loved this pie! only I live in Italy, and can't found cans of cherry/apple/cranberry/whatever filling, so I put some blueberries under syrup in the condensed milk.
It was very good all the same.
I was a little disappointed with the texture of the pie -- it was runny, especially toward the center of the pie. I even baked it several minutes longer to try to firm up the pie, but it would not become firmer. I brought it to a potluk and many people liked it a lot, but to me the taste was a little too sweet (the taste of sweetened condensed milk was too obvious/strong). However, this pie was very easy & quick to make.
While this pie is simple to make and uses ingredients I mostly have on had, the taste leaves much to be desired. Even with addition of fruit, all you taste is the sweetened condensed milk. I almost feel as though I am simply eating a solid form of it. It just isn't appealing.
i thought this pie was wonderful, sweet and tart. I used fat free condenced milk.
My husband loved this pie and actually, so did I. It was so simple to make and didnt cost alot for the ingredients.
This pie is super easy, but it is also crazy sweet (and I have a bad sweet tooth). If I make it again, I'll save the cherry juice to thicken with cornstartch and swirl on top and I"ll increase the lemon juice.
This was a HUGE hit the night I made it for the family and an even BIGGER HIT when I took it to the family barbeque for 4th of July. There was nearly a throwdown for the last piece!! The only thing I did in addition was to add some of the cherry juice (reducing a little of the lemon juice) to get a pink color and I chopped the cherries. I also used a regular pie crust which cut a little of the sweetness from the filling.
