    Mercy's Note:

    This was my great aunt's recipe. My aunt uses the recipe often and modernized it for today's lifestyle (hence the microwave). Simple ingredients and little effort with down-home results.

      Oh my! This is so yummy! This brought back memories of childhood for me. I've made this twice now, once in the microwave (VERY fast in mine) and once on the stove. I liked the stove method better. I can't pin it but I think the pie was smoother tasting, if that makes sense! Sprinkled some cinnamon on the top and it was SO yummy. Thanks for the greatest recipe, Mercy!

      What a wonderful pie!!!! I cooked the sugar mixture on the stovetop (I just feel I have more control that way). It turned out perfect. What a great recipe when you need to come up with a quick desert. I just love down-home recipes that have been pass on from generation to generation. Thanks so much for sharing this, Mercy. I will be making it over and over again.
