No Bake Summer Tropical Pie and other similar vintage recipes!

It's time to start thinking about Summer and this vintage Tropical Pie. It was an Eagle Brand Recipe that has been adapted and re done many times.

Sweetened Condensed Milk was a very common ingredient in many American desserts. I find it often used in recipes from my vintage cookbooks.
Eagle Brand makes Sweetened Condensed Milk.
Gail Borden was granted the patent for Sweetened Condensed Milk in 1856.
Although Borden received the patent in 1854 for Unsweetened Milk, it was not successfully canned until 1885 by John Meyenberg.
Borden add Evaporated Milk to the product line in 1892.

1 Pre-Made Graham Cracker Crust
