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.

    Decided to try makiing this recipe into mini tarts. It will easily make 48 mini tarts. It is just a little time consuming but once frozen they are the cutest little bites of goodness.
