I’m not a millionaire (except in my dreams!) but that doesn’t mean I can’t make this delicious no-bake pie recipe from RecipeLion’s newest cookbook: 103 No-Bake Desserts.
The thing that really makes this no-bake pie decadent is the addition of edible pearls. My grandmother always said that pearls went with everything, but who knew that food was also included in that?
Don’t know what you’d make this Millionaire Pie Recipe for? How about a bridal or a baby shower? I think all of your guests would just go crazy for these cute pies.
