This recipe has been in my family for years. I’m not sure where it came from, and I can’t even find a written copy of it. I occasionally got to help make it when I was working at my cousin’s cafe way back in the summer after eighth grade. My best memory of this dessert, though, is when Eric helped me make it for Fourth of July 2006. His family has a big party that lasts for three days. I took this on the first day and was jokingly told not to come back the next day unless I brought one.
I don’t even know that this dessert actually classifies as a pie. However, that’s what it has been called my whole life. Who am I to change it, right? I can say that this is the easiest, most delicious dessert I make. It really requires absolutely zero baking skills, but the taste is out of this world. All the layers come together to make perfect, fluffy goodness. The only change I made was to replace the Cool Whip with whipped cream. I like the taste of it so much better.
