1967 Grand Prize Mandarin Dream Pie

Family Favorites


This recipe was the Grand Prize Winner in a 1967 bake-off. Although it uses simple, inexpensive ingredients, the method is unique and really fun to make.

Step back in time with me to 1967 and see how fun it is to make something "old" "new" again!
