This recipe was one of my grandmother's signature pies! She was the best cook ever, and this pie is simply delicious! Growing up, my mother made it, and I love to lick the pan! This recipe works best if cooked in a heavy aluminum dutch oven size pan. I use a piece from Club Aluminum that my mom had forty years ago!
