My mother-in-law gave me this recipe a while back. I don't know where she got it from, but it is a delicious and very sweet dessert. It is one of our favorites in our home around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. We have some very good friends that have several acres of grapefruit, and they are always giving us grapefruits. We always share our pies with them. Keep in mind that the preparation and cooking time will vary.
