I found this delicious recipe stuck in one of my cookbooks. I'm not sure where it came from, but it may have been one of my dad's recipes that came from one of his sisters or nieces. My husband told me that it's not very good and I shouldn't eat any of it. Yeah right! That's what he ALWAYS says when something is so good that he wants to keep it all for himself! Anyway, it's a great pie for any holiday, church dinner, family reunion or potluck. (Hint: You may want to take a few copies of the recipe with you!)
