“This recipe uses three simple ingredients,. It is perfect for entertaining, because it cooks on the back of the stove while everything else is being prepared for dinner. It can be made the day before. The cook time does not include the time it takes to boil the sweetened condensed milk. This pie recipe was shared with me by a friendly grocery check-out clerk that I used to swap recipes with each week. She liked my soups and I liked her desserts.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove paper wrapper from cans. Wash the cans and place them in a large pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Lower heat until there is a slow boil. Let cans boil until the ends begin to bulge out. Keep adding water to cover the cans as needed. This may take 2 to 3 hours. Remove pot from heat. Let the pot cool for a few minutes. Use tongs to remove the cans. DO NOT OPEN THE CANS. YOU WILL GET A NASTY BURN. After the cans have completely cooled, carefully open them. The contents are under pressure, so expect it to ooze out as you open the cans. Pour the brown contents into the pie shells. Refrigerate until ready to serve. When time to serve, top with whipped frosting. Be sure to lick the spoon -- life is short!
