This is a perfect 10 pie, not to sweet, easy to make, and even the presentation of the pie is perfect too. I made this for a BBQ during the 4th. and the guys got to it before us ladies came back from our walk and they didn't leave us 1 piece, I licked the pie plate:-) DH is requesting I make this again, when there is noone around to share with! Thanks Bev for a great recipe!!
