This is an awesome pie served at a local restaurant. A few year ago I became addicted to this pie and had to go every week to buy some. I went so many times they actually told me the ingredients in the pie. I made it a few times and realized I had to stop. Usually I don't care for sweets but this pie is different and not sugary. I am getting the hankering to make it again though. I don't know if the restaurant still serves this dish but I have never seen it anywhere else. I tried to google it with out success so I'm going to put it together my way and call it Jewel's. Try it, I think you will love it.
