Million Dollar Pie
The Million Dollar Pie
The first time I had ever heard of the Million Dollar pie was at my nieces house this past Christmas. We had all brought a dish or two so all the work didn't fall on my niece.
One of the guest brought what she called a Million Dollar pie. It was delicious. So, of course, I set about finding a recipe for it online. To my surprise there was what seemed hundreds of recipes to choose from.
I have chosen a few, four to be exact of what I consider to be the best Million Dollar Pie Recipes.
I hope you like the. I think every one of them is a winner.
When I tried to find out who started this pie, where it got it's name, how long people have been making it, etc. all I could find out is - it's been around for years.
One of the wonderful things about these recipes is that if you don't want a pie you can make your own new ambrosia. Place it all in a glass bow, and it makes a wonderful little side dish.

By the Way...
If you are one of those people who love the crust of a pie and you just can not image any thing being called a pie without out a real home baked crust, don't despair. These recipes are also delicious with a pastry crust.
The easiest way would be to buy a pie tin with a ready made crust bake it, let it cool, then fill it with the goodies. If you are hankering for a real home baked crust, go for it.
Try it with a chocolate graham cracker crust. It's sinfully delicious.
