My first experience to have this pie was in 1985 and I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and I was visiting my Grandma Debelak. It was an extremely hot day and she took this pie out of the freezer and cut a slice for both of us. I immediately fell in love!
OH MY! Can I say it was the most refreshing slice of pie that I had ever had. I can still remember the moment in time with Grandma Debelak sitting in her kitchen and eating this pie on a hot hot summer day.
It is a very easy recipe to make and I hope you enjoy this refreshing pie.
