Forgotten Pie
Hazel's - Taken from a California recipe box.
Preheat oven 425 degrees
6 egg whites, beaten real stiff - till foamy
then add
1/2 tsp. Cream of tarter
1/4 tsp salt
Beat in 1 1/2 cup white sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time.
Beat at least 10 minutes in all.
Spread in a 9 x 13 inch buttered pan.  Put in oven and turn off heat.  Do not open until next morning.

Then spread with Dizerta.
(This is what she wrote on the card, I do not know what it is.)
"When serving, spoon on peaches, frozen peaches are best." she wrote.

A Lady wrote in to say, "Hello, I really enjoy your web site!

In the Forgotten Pie recipe, it states to "spread with Dizerta". This sounded familiar to me, Like a diabetic Jell-O my
Grandmother ate.  I thought it was spelled Deezerta. A search came up with nothing. I tried Dezerta and found this:
Kraft Food Service - search for Dezerta
I know I haven't seen it for many years. They may have changed the name to sugar free. I also don't remember it being a
pudding, just the Jell-O.
Thank you for sharing your recipes!
Debra From- Montana

I received this email on 1-22-2007 and wanted to share what she said about this recipe.  It will be useful to everyone.
Thanks Debra, for your impute.  It is much appreciated.

On October 20th, 2010 I received the following email:
It appears that the spelling for your Hazel is actually D-zerta.  Here is a commercial for it:
I remember seeing these ads on TV when I was a kid.  I never ate it, but according to the web references I found, there
might have been a sugar-free Jell-o product as well as a sugar-free whipped topping (like Cool Whip) that came from a
powdered mix.
Thank you for your interesting website.

Recipes come from the 1940's through the 1970's taken from handwritten recipe

Vintage pie recipes, the pies our mother's made.

There was a time, not so long ago, when pies were all homemade.  Yes, as odd as
that seems, moms made pies in their own kitchens, in their own ovens, and cooled
said pies on window sills.

I am gathering, collecting, recipes from old tin and wooden recipe boxes.  Most are
handwritten and some are typed, (lucky me).  Some memories you just can't let go
of.  Call it a mid life crisis, if you will, but I don't think this little bit of history, even if it
is unimportant, should just be tossed out with the trash.
