I took my mothers recipe and made it even better. She didn't complain. LOL! I thought she'd ask what I changed, but she didn't. Hers or mine, both are easy and delicious! I warmed up some caramel and piped over the pie. Completely optional. Enjoy warm with a scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream. Yum!
