Chocolate Angel Pie recipe (1985)

Yield: 8
Prep Time: 35 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

  • 1-1/3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 8 ounces frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 425 (F).
  2. Combine flour and salt in a mixing bowl.
  3. Cut in Crisco with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture is uniform (mixture should be fairly coarse).
  4. Sprinkle with water, 1 tablespoon at a time; toss lightly with a fork.
  5. When all the water has been added, work dough into a firm ball.
