Retha Malone's Pineapple Cream Pie



Mrs. Judy Jackson was a bonus surprise when I last visited family over Spring Break in Paris, Texas. She brought this wonderful pie that was her mother's recipe for dinner and everyone fell over it like a pack of wolves. Family recipes handed down are the best, and when people share those memories of loved ones, it's all the more special. Judy's mamma lovingly made this for her family, and she, in turn, makes it for hers, and now I am making it for mine. Thank you Retha and Judy for allowing me to share it here with my JAP friends. Old recipes are the best recipes!
