Although this isn't exactly the requested recipe, I was reminded of my
mom's Millionaire's Pie and am pleased to share it:
1 medium can crushed pineapple, drained
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1/3 cup juice of a lemon
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened milk
1 cup walnuts , chopped fine
12 oz. tub of Cool Whip
Fold ingredients together and turn into a graham cracker crust.
This recipe sounded familiar. I search my Mother's old cookbooks which
I have inherited, and found this recipe. It was on a piece of thin cardboard,
Possibly from a dream whip box. I can remember having it every Easter.
Delicious! I hope this is what you are looking for.
