This pie is one of my husband's favorite pies, I made quite a few different versions before I won his approval on this winning family favorite. Appropiately I called it his favorite in my cookbook. Everyone else has approved also. I made 8 of these for a family reunion & bake sale one year. Hands down it was liked by everyone.
