Oh boy! I forgot about this pie recipe! My girlfriend who lives in Florida sent this to me many years back. I made it but then my recipe went traveling as all recipes seem to do. I found it and now am posting so I don't have to worry anymore. Yay!

On my card from Gwen, it says: Seeing is believing--to taste it. that's even better!

Oh yes..someone was right! delish!!
