CHOCOLATE ORANGE CREAM PIE: Retro Recipe & Ad

Today is National Pie Day. Now, you might think that December 1 is National Pie Day, and you'd be right! There are actually two days devoted to pie, and that doesn't include National Boston Cream Pie Day and National Peach Pie Day or any of the other 'special' pie days.

So in honor of the day, I thought I'd post one of the Retro Baker's Chocolate Recipe Story Ads. This one is for Chocolate Orange Cream Pie and appeared in Life Magazine on April 1, 1940. Take note of the incredibly retro comments about women pleasing men.

Happy National Pie Day Janet!!! Personally, I love that pie is celebrated so often through the year. Especially when chocolate is involved:)

Love the "retro" recipe too!

Thanks for sharing...

This sounds like the perfect dessert for Son2 - he loves chocolate oranges. I'll probably stir the orange zest into the chocolate mixture.
