Personal Notes:
I remember Linnie making this pie on the heating stove, stirring and stirring. This recipe should be similar to hers. Her mother Pansy also made them. My husband Thomas remembers her Mother's as Sugar Pies which were very special. This is in memory of Linnie Cooley Norton. (1924-1945). We all loved her.
