Sweet Cherrity Pie

I found this about 30 years ago as a prize winning recipe in a magazine. I've since tweaked it to "healthy-fy" it a little. The crust really is worth the little bit of effort it is. A very different taste and texture from the usual graham cracker crust, nutty and crunchy, really good!

Note: back in the "old" days whipped topping was not recommended. Now days, it has improved and can be reduced fat and/or sugar free and still works great!
