This pie is so easy and so good! I got it from the Fanny Farmer Cookbook and I always double the recipe because it freezes beautifully.

Had two of my DGSs for Thanksgiving dinner and they each requested a differant pie. the 12yr old had heard this one mentioned in a song and it was his request. Therefore he made it all himself, followed the recipe exaclty (I should have noted the reivewer who said to use 3/4 cup, but was still good) topped it with whipped cream and it was wonderful and enjoyed by all.
