This is such a special pie to me and one of the simplest do make! It literally takes less then 5 minutes and is always perfect! When I was growing up it was not uncommon for us to have company from early morning till late at night. When Mom knew it was going to be a busy day she would whip this up while waiting for a pot of coffee to finish. 🙂 Her guests would notice when they smelled it baking; and would say “What is that amazing smell?” Mom would just smile and say just a little something that will go with coffee 🙂 and it sure did. Company would be amazed she even had time to make a pie! I would always see her beam with pride as she served her guests; she was so multi-talented and they DID notice.
We lost my Mom after a long illness in 2010 but her memory will live on forever in our hearts and with her recipes for generations to come.
Do you have recipes that just make you feel so good when you bake them? For me this is it! I love the sweet smell from the oven. The hardest part is letting it cool 🙂 My mom would stick it in the freezer to cool it quicker. I just put mine in the fridge 🙂
Often, at night after the house is quiet, I find myself sitting down with a cup of coffee on the back deck just enjoying the peacefulness and savoring this pie – thinking back to when I was a little girl and my Mom would create magic in the kitchen.
