I first discovered this recipe when I was 16 (I'm 33 now) and it appeared in the coupon ads. I asked my mom if she could pick up the ingredients from the grocery store on her next trip so that I could make this for us. She did. I made it and was surprised by how pretty & yummy it is. I made it for my grandmother once and she was so impressed & requested the recipe. That meant alot to me because she's from the south and makes homemade (from scratch) pies. In fact, she was well known within our circle of friends/family for her pies. Thanks for posting. I hope others give a try.
