Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I had to put this recipe in the cookbook because it is Pete's favorite (from Betty Crocker). And sorry Mom but I use pre-made refrigerated Pillsbury pie crust. Since there are just two of us this recipe is for an 8" pie. I usually bake this pie with a foil tent so topping doesn't get too brown and remove foil the last 10 minutes.
