A big birthday waits just around the corner. July 4th is the mid-summer U.S. holiday, marked with picnics, parades, patriotism…fireworks, family, and food. Perhaps you plan to join a gathering, and already you wonder, "What am I going to take to the feast on the 4th?" Consider baking this Fudge Pie for the dessert table. Ahhh... simple and simply delicious.
