    cookiedog's Note:

    I pass by the Buttercup Bar and Grill every time I go to visit my Mom and Dad. I've never eaten there, but after watching Debbie Shahvar make this on a local tv station today, I'll be sure to stop by the next time I'm in the area. Meanwhile I'm posting this because I don't want to lose it. Make sure to allow pie to chill for several hours.
