Stormy's notes for this recipe:
As taken from an old Amish cook book sent in by Fanny Mae Bontrager. I made it today and it was 30 minutes at 375degrees. My husband is still raving about this pie. I am no good at crusta but I guess I can do fillings.

This pie is like eating a cloud, light and creamy with a touch of lemon.

Next time I think I will add some lemon flavoring. And my hubby wants me to add flaked coconut
Make it Your Way...

I've been making this pie since my aunt made it for a family reunion in the 70's. It is so good and tasty!
