"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a staple dessert in Southern cooking having derived from Chess Pie. I believe that the recipe came from a cookbook that Nana had. I remember her making this when Cassie and I were kids and I believe it is still one of Cassie's favorite desserts.
