Personal Notes:
In 1993, I participated in my first Reisetter family holiday. Throughout the enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend, I was introduced to much of the family and the general population of Grinnell as Heather's friend "Brett the Republican." The revelation of my party affiliation drew a variety of reactions ranging from bemusement to genuine concern for Heather's well-being. One afternoon, the Rixens stopped by for a visit bringing the delicious pie described in this recipe. I had never attempted to make any pie, but this pie was so good that I decided I should get the recipe. Someone introduced me to pleasant Helen Rixen as "Brett the Republican" and for additional shock value mentioned that I had at one time worked for Bob Dole. Mrs. Rixen then shared her views about Bob Dole with me, which were very sincerely felt and not at all favorable. But she gave me her pie recipe anyway, and I have enjoyed making it on many occasions.
