Recipe by Christmas Carol
From a cookbook called "Great Food From Mom's Diner", this pie couldn't taste more like Grandma baked it than, well, if she HAD baked it! I made this for Thanksgiving last year and the first bite just amazed me. It almost tasted a bit TOO homemade-(is there such a thing?) Since I'm not a big pie person and probably favor the more modern, trendier desserts, I haven't really made it again. But if you love pie with extremely old-fashioned flavor and VERY simple to put together, try this one out and impress the family! A scoop of vanilla ice cream on top would be just grand.
