This is a recipe my mom told me my Great-grandmother made during the depression and war. They had a cow, and churned and sold butter and milk. Also had two hens and a rooster...so they had eggs. So those items weren't rationed for them. They would save up the sugar and make this pie. She would make her own pie crust....I am bad and usually use a refrigerated pie crust. Recipe that is full of memories for me and my family. :)
