This week’s Sunday Supper theme is a Summer BBQ Party which couldn’t be more perfect as every Sunday you’ll likely find out family in the backyard grilling dinner.  I’m also happy to be co-hosting this week’s event with Jennie from The Messy Baker.

It’s only appropriate that I’m sharing a dessert recipe today as it’s what I always volunteer to bring to parties.  And this dessert is a family favorite that Andy’s mom makes for us.  In fact, she included in a recipe book that she and Andy’s sister compiled for me full of recipes from family and friends when Andy and I got married.  It wouldn’t be Summer without this pie!

Even better, this frozen confection comes together in just 15 minutes and I almost always have everything on hand.  Score for always having dessert at the ready!
