“I used to call my MIL the "Queen of Pies" as she would serve 2 different pies EVERY night for dinner. So...when I married her son and felt that I had to make pies... I was quite intimidated by trying to keep up to her standards. This recipe gave me enough confidence that even she gave me the "nod"!!! Obviously with practice, I have got better over the years....but this recipe was very forgiving to me when I first started out making pies!!!!”
3 small 2 crust pies or 2 large pie, 1 pie shell
