Go to Susan's blog~ NotQuiteJuneCleaver... it's Susan's First Giveaway of 2008! The giveaway is all about PIE!
The first time I ever tasted Ritz Cracker pie was in 1973~ I was standing in Cindy Hensley's Mother's kitchen. I thought I had died and gone to pie heaven! A pie with crackers in it, it was wonderful! I was 17 and I can assure you I wasn't interested in jotting down a recipe. So...that was the last time I had thought about or tasted a Ritz Cracker pie until Sandy Inscore came into my life~ Sandy shared her recipe with me~ YEY SANDY!!
