This recipe was given to me by a neighbor when I was a young bride 47 years ago. I have passed it on to my daughter-in-law, and it is a favorite of her five brothers and sister. Warning: The filling is very rich, almost gooey--that's what makes it so good. You can mix the filling ingredients in the standard way for cream pies and cook them over low heat, stirring constantly as I did until microwaves were invented. Now, I prefer to cook mine in the microwave.(I do not have lumps in microwaved cream pies as I sometimes do when I use the standard cooking method).
