Wow! This pie was great. )And yes, I agree with Steph (reviewer), this did make 2 regular pies for me too. I couldn't find my ginger so I made it without and was still delicous! I guess it's a fool proof pie, (to an extent). We loved this pie!

This pie came out great! I didn't use cloves (didn't have any!) or nutmeg (mother-in-law doesn't like it) and it still came out really good. I will definitely keep this recipe!
