Being a true southern girl - my favorite pie is the pecan pie but it can be a bit too sweet! This recipe not only is not too sweet but it is also very easy to put together! It is a staple at all parties and church functions. It is my most requested desert recipe. It can easily be made into a pie or into tarts.
