Nabisco is a member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association. The GMA has been pouring ZILLIONS of dollars into 'dark money' campaigns to defeat labeling of genetically modified food in Oregon, California, Colorado, everywhere. I vote with my dollars, and I know which companies have been bought by the malefactors. Health and peace.

Thank you, Relish for a interesting recipe. I would substitute organic vegan graham crackers, organic vegan dark chocolate chips, organic silken tofu and use coconut oil in place of margarine. Then I would top with vegan extra-dark chocolate curls! Heaven.

Are you not embarrassed, on a supposedly health care site, to still recommend margarine?!! Hello!... The caps in the following quote from "Wellness Mama" are my own.

"Vegetable oils (and margarine, made from these oils) are oils extracted from seeds like the rapeseed (canola oil) soybean (soybean oil), corn, sunflower, safflower, etc. They were practically non-existent in our diets until the early 1900s when new chemical processes allowed them to be extracted.
Vegetable oils are manufactured in a factory, usually from genetically modified crops that have been heavily treated with pesticides.
Take for instance, the common CANOLA OIL, the beauty queen of the vegetable oil industry. It was developed by making a hybrid version of the rapeseed, and it was given its name in the 1980s as part of a marketing effort organized by a conference on mono-saturates.
Rapeseed oil contains high amounts of the toxic erucic acid, WHICH IS POISONOUS to the body. Canola oil is an altered version, also called Low Erucic Acid Rapeseed (LEAR) and it is commonly genetically modified and treated with HIGH LEVELS OF PESTICIDES.
Canola (modified rapeseed oil) is produced by heating the rapeseed and processing with a PETROLEUM SOLVENT to extract the oil. Then another process of heat and addition of acid is used to remove nasty solids (wax) that occur during the first processing..."

Enjoy your pie!

Rest in piece, Bela. And you're with your person at last.

I agree Janet R-what is with Pat and Ken? Have they not heard of Best Friends? The sanctuary what to…

Bella, you are now back with your lady friend. RIP

Looks very nice but in my experience, 10 minutes is nowhere near long enough to caramelise onions. …

I can only hope this fella doesn't suffer unforeseen problems in the future.
