Thank you so very much for this recipe. I have fond memories of growing up and my Dad made fruit cocktail pie for the holidays. He added walnut pieces to it. He is gone now, and I have tried many times to duplicate his pie with not good results. I think you nailed it, Pat. I cannot wait to try it. I plan to add some walnuts, though. Thank you again!
