Please don't shoot ...
 
But there is hardly anything more satisfying as a no-bake cherry pie topped with whipped cream cheese in a graham cracker crust.

I have an old cookbook at home"A Thousand Ways to Please A Husband by Louise Bennett Weaver and Helen Cowles LeCron. In fact I have two copies of the book.The original one printed in 1917 and the other printed in the 1930s with some additional recipes in the back and some changes to the menus in the chapters which read as stories.
Really neat book.Anyhow I will look at the book and see if they have a recipe for graham cracker pie.I think there is one but it didn't have any filling to it. If I find the recipe I'll go and post it for you.
By the way Dover Publications has reprinted the book.

Who knew that Parkersburg, WV was such a hotbed of graham cracker pie?  Certainly not me, until now.  On Saturday, we stopped at Marilyn's Corner Café, which has the odd distinction of being the first restaurant I ever ate at inside a car dealership.  Actually, it shares the lot and looks like it is in a maintenance building. 
 
When we sat down, we weren't sure if we were going to order lunch or go straight to the pie.  The waitress dropped off breakfast menus despite the fact that it was already 11:30.  Having already had one wholly unsatisfying breakfast on this morning, we weren't going to take a chance.  They has at least a5 different pies and I ordered a slice of three different ones.  When the waitress brought them over, they all looked an almost identical yellow.
 
The coconut was terrific, the banana not so much, but this thread is about graham cracker pie.

I prefer my meringue to be light and airy and this one was dense and spongy.  When you have difficulty sliding your fork through it, the meringue is too thick.  The vanilla filling didn't taste fresh and the layer of graham cracker crust was on the thin side.  This was a disappointment.
 
On Sunday morning, we stopped at Mary B's Diner.  Despite arriving at 10:45, they let us go ahead and order lunch.  My hot turkey sandwich with dressing right on the sandwich was a keeper, but Mariton was less than pleased with her hot roast beef, which came out cold.  I was actually racing through my meal since this pie list

was staring us in the face. 
 
I chose the graham cracker, of course, while Mariton went for her favorite, blackberry.  When I came back from the bathroom, my pie was there, but it was flying solo.  They were out of the blackberry and the check was already dropped off, which is how we only ended up with only one slice of pie.  Which was a shame, because this is one of the best graham cracker pies

I have had.  It did have that same style of overly thick meringue, but this one tasted much fresher and cut easily with a fork.  The vanilla flavor of the filling was spot on.  As for the graham cracker crust, you better ask Mariton since she zeroed in on that and I got very little.  Next time in Parkersburg, we will be exploring more of the menu and pie list at Mary B's Diner.

We call this ice box cake in my family, unless I'm mistaken and that's something different

Hey BB..... Here's another restaurant inside a car dealership, at Galpin Ford in Los Angeles, been there since the 60's
I have eaten there a couple times, bought several vehicles there in years past.
