My mother in law found this recipe in the newspaper many years ago. Her best friend Ruby just found out she had stage 5 breast cancer. My mother in law made these pies and took one over to her. Ruby said the was the best pie she had ever had. We still have the clpping and on the clipping is written "Ruby's favorite pie".
