You know how some people just luv key lime pie, or pecan pie, or a good old fashioned apple pie, my dad’s favorite was the pastel party pie.
The pastel party pie was made rain or shine as close to July 27 that we could get it every year for my dads birthday this was his all-time favorite pie ever.
I have a vague memory of grandma one hot summer afternoon in the kitchen of the old farmhouse making this very pie, and it was so sweltering hot outside, in Wisconsin in July!
Because the pie has an ice cream base, we were rushed in, completed the singing of the birthday song and rushed to make sure we ate it before it turned to soup. All the delicious pink fruity ice cream soup!
