“We had this pie quite often when I was growing up. The first time my husband, then my boyfriend, came over to meet my parents, Mom decided to make this pie. She must have been a little flustered, because she forgot the sugar. She served him first and he started eating it without saying a word. Mom decided he was a keeper because he ate that awful pie so politely.”
