Funny Pie

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ellie_

This fast easy-to-make desert is the perfect cooking project for kids. Please don't expect a pie crust, as this "pie" does not have a crust but is simply a delicious desert perfect for a family dinner. Original recipe printed in Bon Appetit (June, 1982).

I must tell you my Granddaughter had a blast making Funny Pie. We did it with Marks homehealth aide nurse. We shared it with the children outside. I would not change not one thing. This is just plain out fun. Thank You so very much.
