If you use a homemade 9" pie crust it fills it up and mounds just beautifully. I added extra cherries and walnuts to the top and shaved a little chocolate on top for decoration. It's very rich so cut it in small pieces! If you're really into "death by sweetness" drizzle a little chocolate syrup over the top when you serve it! It's delicious!
I made this last night for a group of 12 & it was "okay". I followed recipe exactly & the pie was in the fridge for about 8 hours. When I took it out to cut it, it was pretty runny. It tasted okay, but I don't think I would make again.
This is a fabulous recipe!!! Quick & easy make and everyone loved it! I used a graham cracker crust & pecans instead of walnuts. There was a lot of excess...it could really make two pies.
I came across this recipe by accident and the name
caught my eye. My brother and I fondly remember a
pie my mother made when we were kids called a Million Dollar Pie. It was the ONLY thing my mother managed to make that was appetizing. She never could recall the recipe and we talk about it every so often now that our Mom has passed. This caught my eye, and I could tell it was the same from what flavors I remembered tasting as a kid. Except for the cherries. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for bringing a wonderful memory back to life!! It's delicious!!!
This was a huge hit! I garnished the top with kiwi fruit that added color and a bit more fruit. I did try with the chocolate crust and prefer it with the plain graham crust. Fantastic!
this is an awesome and easy recipe that i have been using for a few years now and is always a special request at all the functions that i attend. One of the reviewers had mentioned it was very runny... i have had this problem to once before but figured out that the whip cream truly has to be completely thawed out. If it is frozen still at all, when you mix the ingredients, you will end up with what i fondly refer to as hawaiian soup! And no matter how long you keep it in the fridge at that point it will never firm up. so make sure that the whip cream is totally thawed out and you shouldn't have any problems!
Made 2 pies out of this - one w/ regular crust and one w/ grahm cracker crust. Substituted macadamia nuts for the walnuts. Tasted great. I'll be making several for our luau party!
Not bad for a frozen whipped topping pie. I doubled the cherries and used more pineapple. The ingredients can be changed to reflect any flavor, and next time i won't use a crust, just put it in dessert dishes.
