"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Note: I usually double this but it fits a 9x12 pan perfect as a single.

I use orange juice instead of pineapple juice if I don’t have enough

No need to double crust if you are doubling the receipt unless you like a thicker crust

I make this at Easter time.
