“This is a recipe I learned in my 6th grade microwave home and careers class. It is a great first recipe for children wanting to cook. There are a few similar recipes but the ingredients and amounts differ a bit, and I think mine is the best! Lowfat tub margarine can replace butter without a huge difference in taste.”
1 pie sized ring
