At every holiday dinner my dad always asks, "Are we having icebox dessert or Graham Cracker Pie?" His mom made these for him while growing up and continues to be his favorite. My sister always chuckles and says, "No, dad, we're having pumpkin pie (Thanksgiving) and that's that. The funny thing is that my husband and son have started asking the same question, so now that I moved back to the area, I make one of them for every holiday. After years of being told, "No" my dad always has a startled but pleased look when I answer, "Yes!" Why not give people what they want. This dessert can be made a few days in advance and sets up firm. This recipe is for vanilla lovers.
