I developed this recipe based on a popular pie served at an Atlanta restaurant. Everyone looks forward to this dessert at the annual Christmas party we host on our farm. Chocolate curls as a garnish are a nice contrast to the creamy white pie.
"Your guests will be requesting the recipe after one bite of this fluffy and refreshing pie," promises Laurie Bourgeois of New Bedford, Massachusetts. "It doesn't take much time to prepare, yet it tastes as though you spent hours in the kitchen."
For Valentine's Day, tint whipped topping pink to cover Sue Brown's creamy dessert. Follow the Hanover, Indiana cook's lead and sprinkle the pie with a crushed Heath candy bar, or garnish each slice with an Oreo cookie for a fast finishing touch.
This refreshing pie was featured at a small resort my family visited regularly as I was growing up. When I make it now, I relish compliments from tasters along with fond memories of sunny days at the beach and good home cooking.
