    SusieQusie's Note:

    Recipe courtesy of: Dinner in the Diner - Great Railroad Recipes - T&P Railway was originally chartered by Congress in 1871 to establish rail service from Texas to San Diego. This pie was a signature dessert in their first class dining car. DH and I are avid railfans and his huge collection of models and memorabilia is all T&P badged. The original, ornate station in south Fort Worth was recently refurbished and sold as loft condominiums - This has nothing to do with the recipe of course but is where we dream of living someday (after everyone else moves out and we have the whole building to ourselves, of course ;-)). I will make cantaloupe pies as I listen for the steam engines to come puffing up the tracks; a long wait for sure but hey, it is *my* dream!

      I don't want to be the first to review...because it totally could have been a mistake on my part. I followed every instruction to a T..but the filling didn't harden seemed to have a little too much nutmeg in it for me, and it just soaked the crust. It was probably cooker's error, so please someone else try and review this because I want to know what you think. Making it was alot of fun, and all the ingredients sounded wonderful, but it just didn't work for me.
