My, Aunt Lula Bruce (1897-1994), Sullivan, MO, would make this pie for me whenever I came for visits. She would make her own pie crust,too. I have no idea where/who she got this from. I have never been "big" on really sweet things. This is not an overly sweet pie. I could smell it baking when I would come in the house and my mouth would water. I always had such a good time when I would be able to go up and stay with them for a while. As I got older, I would always make sure I got up whenever I could for a visit. This pie brings back memories. I hope you enjoy it, too.
