My father baked this simple and delicious pie every Christmas Eve. We used to serve gravy, mashed potatoes and cranberries on the side. This one is a winner. You will need 2-9 inch pie crusts for this pie. Thanks Dad!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We second that; this recipe is a real winner. It's a Blue Ribbon winner, in fact! Hearty and satisfying, this one ranks pretty darn high in the world of comfort foods. Mash a few potatoes, toss a salad, and you have one soul-warming meal.
