This is a must try...easy and delicious recipe and the ultimate comfort food!
This recipe was shared with me by my friend, a preacher's wife. It's soo good and well worth the effort! Not particularly difficult to make, either. Sometimes, I divide the filling and make two pies, Plus, you can keep one for yourself and share the other.
