I've been making this pie for a few years now. Don't remember where I got the original recipe, but after a little tweaking here & there, it's a good pie. We don't care for Meringue, so I never make it, but my friend Amy Jones does, so the pic with meringue is her pie using this recipe. Ok, I finally remembered where I got the recipe from, lol. It is my Momma's, lol. (Photos by Nancy Thomas & Amy Jones)
