When I need something extra special to take to a fun get-together, this is the recipe I like to make. This pie looks and tastes fabulous. It pleased even those ladies who don't like pies. Really, how do you not like pie? Anyway, it was "gobbled" up in minutes! I never saw a pie disappear so fast. I made mine with homemade pie crust and it turned out so pretty (see picture)!
