Recipe by echo echo

My favorite recipe from the old 1970s cookbook The Vegetarian Epicure. I've adapted it a bit, most notably replacing butter with butter-flavored cooking spray.

I LOVE this pie! My Mum used to make it when I was a child. I use frozen pie crust and it still tastes awesome! Enjoy and thanks Echo echo!
