East Texas Sweetie Pie

Lori Harbin-Combs


This Texas recipe has been around my family for 40 plus years. It has also been a star at many gatherings. I have never tasted anything better and it is so simple and fast that I made the crust and filling in less than 15 minutes! I used Tara Pacheco's recipe for No Roll Pie Crust this time and loved it! So this was a match made in heaven lol!
