If you don't tell anyone - they will not know that they are eating sauerkraut in this custard pie.
This is a sweet pie- so cut small pieces. Enjoy
This recipe is from my husband's Polish grandmother- written on an envelope. This photo was clipped to the envelope.I tweaked the recipe a bit.
I haven't made this pie yet, but my husband said he ate it at his grandma's once and it was good.
