White Christmas Pie

Pat Duran


These pies were made for a church social supper and makes 6 pies- needless to say we ran out of this pie and had to give the recipe out - but I had it all typed out already for them- because the same thing happened last year. Now it is always requested and we always run out no matter how many are made! I don't remember where I got this recipe , but it was sometime in 1970.
You can break it down to one or two pies for your convenience. I never tried freezing them because there were never any left- but you might try it - it should work well- just thaw 10 minutes before serving.
