My sister found this recipe some 30+ years ago...President Truman requested this often and Bess would go to the kitchen and make this for him herself. This is best served warm with FRESH whipped cream.

I remember my mother making this back in the 50's and 60's. Very good!

I use this all the time. It's my favorite dessert. I use a 10" pie plate and serve it with fresh sweetened whipped creme in wedges. It's the same recipe my mom used when I was growing up.
