Coffee Scotch Whip Pie © 1968

Well, the votes are in and it looks like the Coffee Scotch Whip Pie comes in at #1. I'll be posting an accompanying image for each recipe that has one, and in the case of those that do not, simply the cover of the recipe book.

3/4 cup Pillsbury's Best All Purpose Flour*
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon instant coffee
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 square (1/2 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate, grated

1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup butter

Marble Filling

1 package Pillsbury Vanilla or Chocolate Whipped Refrigerator Frosting Mix
1 package (4 oz.) instant butterscotch pudding mix
2 tablespoons sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons instant coffee
1 cup cold milk


In small mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, instant coffee, brown sugar, grated chocolate and vanilla. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs and begins to cling together. With floured fingers, press onto bottom and sides of 9-inch pie pan. Bake at 375º for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool. Fill with Marble Filling. Garnish with dollops of reserved frosting. Chill until firm, about 2 hours.

Marble Filling: Prepare frosting mix as directed on package. Reserve 1/2 cup for garnish; set aside. In small mixing bowl, combine instant pudding mix, sugar, instant coffee and milk; beat with rotary beater until smooth, about 1 minute. If necessary, let pudding mixture stand about 1 minute to thicken slightly. Fold pudding carefully into frosting mixture only to marbleize slightly.

*For use with Pillsbury's Best Self-Rising Flour, omit salt.

Tip: For a chocolate crust, melt butter and ungrated chocolate in small sauce pan over low heat, cool slightly. Blend into flour mixture.

Whipped Cream Pie: Whip 2 cups (1 pint) whipping cream and 1/8 teaspoon salt until soft mounds form. Combine 1 package (4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix with 1/2 cup cold milk. Fold unto whipped cream. Substitute for whipped refrigerator frosting mix.

NOTE: Since Pillsbury Whipped Refrigerator Frosting Mix appears to longer be in production, you may be able to substitute a can of Pillsbury's Whipped Supreme Frosting or perhaps even Cool Whip.
