Personal Notes:
This is a wonderful pie! I got the recipe from a cookbook that my dear friend Dottie Smith gave me. It was put out by Hoegemeyer Seeds. When I went back to mark the recipe, I discovered that the recipe is one that came from Phyllis Vanosdall in Scotia. Phyllis is related to the Dwinell side of the family.
