Personal Notes:
Do not over mix or pies will burn before they set. Set means that they no longer "jiggle" when pie pan is shaken VERY lightly. Good brand of store bought, frozen pie crusts work best. This makes 3 pies. Do not try to reduce recipe. It will just not turn out right for some reason. Believe me, I have tried. Just make 3, keep 1 and give the other 2 to friends or neighbor.
