After Lennie's comment about too much salt, I realized she was right! I normally cut the salt back myself, but when I typed it into Zaar I forgot to make that change. Thanks to Gay, the above amount of salt is now correct! Thanks guys!!!

This was very tasty, and very easy to make. The pie had a bit of a salty taste, even though I cut the salt back to 1/2 tsp; I will cut the salt back to 1/4 tsp, I think, the next time I make it. Other than adjusting the salt, the only change I made was to eliminate the nuts (due to a nut-phobic son). The filling amount filled my storebought pie shell right up to the rim, meaning a bit did slop over when I transferred it onto a cookie sheet to go into the oven -- a minor mess, and one that wouldn't have happened, I think, had I used a homemade 9-inch pie crust, or a deepdish crust. I swear those storebought pie shells are too small! The pie was a hit at dessert tonight, and I will definitely make it again. I also think it'll be perfect to take to potlucks :-)

I've been trying to duplicate my father in laws pie from childhood and this turned out to be THE pie! This really gave him a lot of comfort, especially since his wife just passed away. I really appreciated being able to do a little thing to help. He ate this pie in Brooklyn bakeries and even his family didn't know how to make it, so it was a real coop figuring out the recipe! I used full fat cream cheese. My father in law really liked the addition of nuts on top. Thanks Kim! Roxygirl

Loved this pie! I had all the ingredients on hand so I didn't have to make a trip to the store. Easy to make and it was even better the next day.Thanks, Kim, for sharing.
