Debbie Kobler from Santa Rosa, Calif., was looking for the recipe for one of her favorite desserts from her childhood. She said her great-aunt used to make it for her and called it a Hula Moon Pie. She remembered that the pie had a graham-cracker crust and a cheesecake-like filling made with crushed pineapple and vanilla pudding. Kay Bromley of Berlin sent in a recipe that has a different name but sounds almost exactly like what Kobler tried to locate. The only difference is that Bromley's recipe calls for a shortbread crust instead of a graham-cracker one. This is a very easy, no-bake pie that you can make in less than 5 minutes.

Sharon Friedman of Baltimore was looking for a recipe for chocolate cream pie like the one that was served at a local deli in the 1960s. I received quite a few recipes for this pie. While most of the recipes were fairly similar, the two most common variations had to do with whether the pie had a merique topping and whether it was made in a pastry or cookie crust. Since Friedman did not provide me with much detail about the pie, I decided to test a recipe that was sent in by Teresa Sullivan of Reisterstown because it seemed straightforward and classic.

Edna Doyle from Carney was trying to find a recipe for a Graham-Cracker Cream Pie like the delicious one her mom used to make. Sandra Stedman from St. Augustine, Fla., sent in a recipe that her aunt used to make, saying it was "the best Graham-Cracker Pie ever!" Her recipe makes a rich and luscious custard pie with a beautiful meringue topping. I advise making the custard in a double boiler to be sure it doesn't scald. Also, be sure to allow enough cooling time, or you could end up with a runny mess.
