Persimmon Pie

I just found a cookbook that my mother put together for our church when I was 9 or 10 that I had forgotten about! This book is full of recipes from all the old grannies that my mother grew up with, so you know they're good! These women were friends of my grandmother, so I knew many of them as well. Let me tell you, these women can COOK! So, I've decided to post some of the recipes that appeal to me and I think may be something you all would like to try as well.

This is the third. I've never heard of a persimmon PIE, but this sounds de-lish! If I can find some persimmons, I'm going to try this for the holidays. Enjoy! (The prep time is actually the refrigeration time on this, and the cook time also allows for cooling between steps.)

**This recipe also comes from Ruth Evans, who has gone to be with Jesus, and was one of my grandmother's closest friends.**
