Back by popular request. An Easter favorite!
Traditionally Easter was the time of the year Grandma and Mom made their Easter Pie. Mom and Grandma made their own pie crust but I found this recipe to be pretty close to their recipe using refrigerated pie crust. I have Mom's original but I am still looking through her recipes to find it. Seriously she has lots of recipes!!!! When I do find it I'll post her original, until then try this recipe. I think you may like it and if you do let me know. I'd love to hear from you!
