Haven't made this yet but wondering if you're any relation to Jan McBride Carlton, who wrote one of the best cookbooks ever!

I wish I could say yes, but no I am not.

This sounds good, but why is it called cake, when it is baked in pie shells?
user Joy Carlton grammajoy - Jul 14, 2010
Barbara, you are absolutely correct. Thank you for pointing that out to me. I must have inadvertently typed cake instead of pie. I have fixed it in the recipe now. Thank you so much. Hope you enjoy it.
