Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I sat next to a very sweet lady at the Lord's Acre church dinner. As I ate my custard pie, I told her that I had never baked one. She took my name and address and sent me her recipe. She was 85 at the time. She noted on the recipe card that this recipe originally came from a 1941 Frigidaire cookbook.
