Ok, I came up with this recipe last night.My 3 year old daughter wanted green pie(pistachio pudding pie) and my Hubby wanted cheesecake,so I thought,why not combine the two.WOW!! I am so glad that I did,it turned out amazing.As of this morning,there was about 1/4 of it left.My baby girl even had to have some for breakfast,lol I hope everyone enjoys this one :)
