“This is a long time family favorite comfort food (if pies can be a comfort food). I think my mom told me that it originated with her grandmother who was a farmer which makes sense since all the ingredients are basic staple items. For the faster times, we have made it in the microwave and its actually easier because we don't have to worry about scorching... ENJOY!”
