I used to make the Dream Whip pies and saved the brochure which came in the box for years. Finally threw it away expecting to get another one in the next box of Dream Whip I bought. Alas, it wasn’t in it and I found this web site. I can now try to make that either praline or carmel pie which was delicious. Does anyone remember it?
Thanks, Molly
