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.
I have made this many times and it is great. I have this cookbook and please note that the sugar should be 3/4 cup!!
So glad I came across this recipe online...my Fanny Farmer cookbook has disappeared somewhere in the last 6 yrs. I substituted the Rum with Creme de Cocoa or Kahlua, tastes just as fabulous.
This was my first attempt since moving down south from NY at making "southern" style pies for the holidays so i had no recipes for this and buttermilk pie. I just want to let you know that this was DELICIOUS. everyone loved it and i had to bake more just to have extras in the house. I made it with Milk and it was the best. Thank you, thank you!
