Furrs Cafeteria’s Millionaire pie is the best pie I’ve ever had. I was thrilled to find the recipe. I am somewhat obsessed with pie, so I am always happy to find a good one. Furr’s Cafeteria is a cafeteria style restaurant in Texas with home cooked foods. They used to be all over the state, but nowadays there are only a few left. My home town of Odessa still has one. All of their desserts are extremely good. The Furr’s Cafeteria Millionaire Pie is unbeatable. This is the recipe for it, but some reason mine is never as fluffy. It tastes the same, but certainly doesn’t look the same.
