This recipe was adapted from one I found in a Family Circle magazine. I made a few changes to make it my own, and the taste and look of the recipe was very well accepted by my friends and family. The original pie was in a pie pan. I used a spring form pan, and made a few other changes.
My family really loved it. So it is family approved
