Grandma's Poor Man's Pie

Grandma's Poor Man's Pie created by ganymede

This is an even simpler recipe that I grew up with (I've looked at the other recipes for Poor Man's Pie and Sugar Cream Pie - the other name for this type pie.) My grandmother's recipe was a 2-2/3-3 formula. It was called Poor Man's Pie because farmers always had the ingredients handy.
