This was my grandmother's recipe. She used to make it for us when we were kids. When I make this pie, it always brings back happy memories of my grandmother. It's very sweet, so eat with caution!

LOL, this is the absolute worst disaster I have ever witnessed (hard as a rock). Why didn't you tell me that it has to sit with all that cool whip on top? My family LOVED it. A restauranteer tried to sell it in his very exclusive restaurant. Thank you.
