Nope, WJ-maybe its unique to that area, but was not unique to our household. Mom made graham cracker crusts, AND sprinkled the rest on any given pie she made. Again, could be regional.And specific to an area.What was pictured is something I ate...alot.

    ......and she filled the pie with vanilla, cinnamon, etc....and pudding. But then she became experimental with it!

      Ann,
       
      I've never seen it on a menu outside of Appalachia, doesn't mean that the recipe has found its way outside of that region.

        On the way home from DC yesterday, we stopped in at Barbara Fritchie's Restaurant in Frederick, MD.  Once again, I could not pass up a slice of graham cracker pie and this one was significantly better than the one in the original post in this thread. 

        Tall, airy meringue and the vanilla filling tasted particularly fresh.  The thin layer of shell on top was substantial enough that when I applied pressure with the fork, it went right done through the meringue, through the custard-like filling, through the graham cracker crust, only tearing when the fork met the plate. 
         
        Mariton and I agreed that this was the best slice of graham cracker pie we have tried yet and a big improvement from the first one we had here.

          Oh my gosh--I can practically smell that pie, BB!  So envious.  I do need to try making one.

            love2bake-
            I went back and reread the thread and was curious if you had baked one or not.  If you do, please report back!

              BB - Graham "crack"ers are named appropriately--I LOVE them!  So I need to line up a recipient for the pie right after I make it, or I'll eat way too much of it.   (I had to give away the rest of the chess pie I recently made, too.)

                Guess when you all congregate in Milwaukee, I will have to make you a graham cracker pie-Mom's way!

                  I have an old cookbook A Thousand Ways to Please A Husband 1917 and the revised 1932 edition by Helen Cowles Lecron  and Louise Bennett Weaver.
                  They also wrote Bettina'sBest Salads and Bettina's Best Desserts.
                  Bettina being the main character along with her husband Bob and their friends.The book was written like a novel'each chapter was about something to do with them and their friends and family.Then at the end of the chapter was given the menu for that day and the recipes.Like when Bettina gives a bridal shower party for her friend Alice.
                  They also wrote the book A Thousand Ways to Please A Family which also follows the same vein with Bob,Bettina and their two children Robin and Sue and their friends and their families from the previous book.This book is on Google Books.I thought I saw in it a recipe from graham pie.
                  They also wrote a kiddie's cookbook entitled When Sue Began to Cook.
                  They are very charming.

                    Photobucket is the ONLY way to go!  Just make sure you mark it as PRIVATE.

                    I'm glad I just re-read this!!  I hadn't marked it PRIVATE.  Thanks for posting!

                      My first experiment with a graham cracker pie.  I won't be able to taste it for hours, though!

                          Mine aren't private except for family pictures.  I don't mind others seeing my pictures.

                            Okay, so I don't love this pie.  Maybe it'll be better tomorrow--a lot of pies are--but I think I'll try one of my other recipes for it next time.

                              THAT is a beautiful looking pie.  Sorry to hear you didn't like it more.

                                Another fine slice of graham cracker pie,

                                this time at the wanderingjew reviewed Diehl's in Nitro, WV.  The graham cracker crust seemed a little thinner than others I have sampled, but the homemade vanilla filling was spot on.
