A favorite fall dish which brings back so many memories of my early childhood in Middle falls n.y. visiting my dads mom, Sitting at her kitchen table "helping" make meals.Nobody knew where the "Grunt" name came from until one day at the library in a book on colonial New England recipes they mentioned the name Grunt in the same sentence with apple slumps and cobblers. The name came from the sound it Made while cooking "Bubbling'or "Grunting'.This originally used homemade biscuit crust and homemade vanilla sauce instead of bisquick and cook and serve vanilla pudding.
