    They closed our Furr’s in Corpus Christi, lost their lease, which I doubt happened. They say they will re-open in two to three years. This I have to see. No one will respond to my emails about what happened. I noticed they closed the Victoria texas location. They must no like us in South Texas.

    Just today, I was going through my mother’s handwritten recipe cards and came across this recipe. I grew up in West TX (Lubbock) and Furr’s restaurants, cafeterias and markets (later supermarkets) filled my life on a near daily basis. This recipe is close to the original Furr’s Millionaire Pie recipe, but it is not the original. My Grandmother was the Pastry Chef for Furr’s and is responsible for introducing this recipe. Family legend reveals her to be the creator of Furr’s Millionaire Pie and subsequently, all of its knock-offs. She also purchased the Waldorf Astoria Red Cake from its source and introduced it to the Southwest. I’d tell you the difference between my Grandmother’s recipe and this one, but I’m still weighing the worth of going forward with crafting a book based on my inheritance of a small wooden “Gold Medal Flour Home Services Recipes” box.

      I would definitely consider making the recipes public. Books or even simply placing the content online for others is a great way to share memories from the past.

    I tried this recipe doing the 2 pies as suggested. I found two pies to lack filling. So, I’ve tried the recipe using the filling in only 1 pie and it seems to work much better!

    The Furr’s here in Texas are starting close, what a shame. This looks like a great recipe. Anything like the taste of a Pineapple Upside Down cake?

        You must live near Spring, I have been to the Furrs Buffet there recently. It was much nicer than the one that used to be located in the Greenspoint area.
