This was one of several pies I made for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it.
Wow! This is an incredible dessert! We all loved it at my house! Definitely a dessert you can make for a fancy dinner, or just a nice at-home dinner.
I just finished eating a piece of this pie and I promise it is FABULOUS!!! It takes some time to do the layers, but is worth it. Delicious!!!
