On a Christmas Morning a few years back, our doorbell rang. It was a good friend that had worked with my husband, played racquetball with him. In his hands was a pie. Turns out that the pie was a prize winner for a lady in 2001.This is the recipe for the pie that Jim brought to us straight from the oven...

Glory, what it does to the taste buds.Serve with ice cream,cheese, or as is. Hope you enjoy as much as we do.
