Cook's Notes: You might be able to squeeze a little fat from the recipe by reducing the amount of butter in the crust - or leave out the crust COMPLETELY!
Taste the filling mixture before adding to crust so you can adjust the sweetness to your taste. I liked the TANG I got, but you may want yours a little sweeter.
