This is half a paraphrased recipe, but I have the other half. It’s from ads placed by Betty Crocker in 1951 for their Stir-n-Roll Pie Shell, which used their Gold Medal Flour and Wesson Oil products.
Here’s a helpful picture of the finished product from an ad that I believe is from Better Homes and Gardens, July 1951 (though I could be wrong):
From a box sold in Canby, Oregon.
Stir-n-Roll Refrigerator Pie
Melt 1/2 lb. marshmallows in 1/2 c. milk — cool thoroughly–beat out lumps.
- 1 c. heavy cream–whipped
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 1/2 c. fresh or canned fruit
Chill 1 hour. Remove 20 min. before serving.
Betty Crocker’s Stir-n-Roll Pie Shell (paraphrased by Yesterdish)
To make the crust:
1-1/3 cups sifted Gold Medal Flour
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup Wesson oil
3 Tbsp. cold milk
Don’t stir the wet ingredients together in advance; just pour them in and mix together until you can collect the dough. Flatten it a bit, then roll out between waxed paper until large enough to cover the pie pan.
Remove one sheet of waxed paper. Place the dough, paper side up, in a 9-inch pie pan. Prick with a fork and bake 8 to 10 minutes at 475 deg.
