Thomas Jefferson Pie

Back in the 1950's my mother had a wonderful neighbor who use to make this pie and bring one over to our home. It was one the most delicious pies I have ever tasted. Does anyone have this recipe? I believe it is a southern recipe.

The pie that given to us was completely made and we just ate it, therefore I do not remember any of the ingredients, however it I do remember it did not have any dates in it. and I do not remember if it a custard type, but I do not think so.

You're welcome, Trina. There are a couple options in the recipe, too. I like when recipes do that so I can customize it.

The options are in the link (with or without raisins). Without raisins, it would be more like a custard pie. Hope that helps, Trina. =)

PLEASE tell me how to get the recipe for Thomas Jefferson pie! The link doesn't work any more. I remember it has dates and raisins in a custard that is so delicious. I haven't had this since the 1980's and keep looking for the recipe. This is the closest I've come to finding it.
