Confetti Pie

One thing I’ve passed on to my kids is my love of cookbooks. They already have their own little stash that they love flipping through – and they love to pick out their own things to make.

I try to always say yes when they want to make something out of their books. Of course this one I said yes to before looking at the recipe.

Confetti Pie is from the 1957 edition of Betty Crocker’s New Boys and Girls Cookbook – and some of the packaged ingredients simply aren’t make anymore – so we did some improvising.

The result is a very kid friendly project – with a very kid-friendly outcome.
