“I got this from last year's Better Home & Garden's November issue. The article said it was originally published November 1955. I made it early to test for Thanksgiving, and fell in love with it! My mom was doubtful when I described it (she doesn't like change), but was impressed when she tried it. Of the 3 pies I made for the actual Thanksgiving meal, this one disappeared the fastest! I'm definitely sticking with this recipe. Prep time doesn't include making the pie crust.”
