This recipe is a very old southern pie recipe that was handed down to me by a real southern lady. She has since passed on. It is delicious! Hope you enjoy it as much as I have. You are the ONLY one I have shared it with. No family members have this. I look forward to seeing it in the School of Flaunt blog.

The recipe looks harder than it is. It is such a good dessert. I hope you all try it and enjoy! This is truely a "southern delight." A little old lady gave me the recipe. I have made this for many occasions, and never shared the secrets until I gave it to Cate.
