Personal Notes:
Another one of my standard Thanksgiving food items. This one I have all the ingredients done, beat quickly with a fork just before dinner is served, pour into pie shell and pop into the oven. It comes out just as we are finishing meal and cools to a nice warmth by the time we're ready for dessert (about two hours).
