I love everything retro, vintage, mid-century, kitsch and all things atomic! A 21st century housewife just trying to fit in...to the 50's. I have a passion for vintage recipes and an enormous vintage cookbook collection that I keep testing, even though by now I should know better.

    That’s a scary story behind Snow Ghost pie, the tale of the “cunning old devil” handyman that tempts little kids to steal from their own grandmas! All we ever had was a mildly drunk cleaning woman who came once a week to break things.

    My mother used to make this for me as a kid. I loved it. She probably has the same clipping in her recipes, somewhere.

    I have had this recipe since 1977. I got it from a friend and have alwys wondered how it originated. But I just moved and can’t find anything. Is there anyone that would email the recipe to me? [email protected] Thank you all so..much. Diane

    Thank you for posting this, this was my mothers favorite chocolate pie recipe as I was growing up. Unfortunately it was lost a few years ago, now I can send it to her to make for my kids.
