Helpful hints

  • You can buy graham cracker crumbs or make your own by crushing 36 graham cracker squares.
  • To reduce the fat use Reddi-Wip® dairy whipped topping instead of heavy cream and skip step #6. Instead of spreading on pie, spray about 2 tablespoons on each serving right before it is served. Fat is reduced to 3 grams.
