“Update 9/11/2011 I remembered to look up the recipe while visiting my dad this past month. Hopefully the corrections made below are the keys to making this the yummy pie I remembered my mother making. Based on the two reviews, I'm not recommending this pie. My mom knew what to do, but obviously didn't write down the directions all that well. If you do wish to try it - then adjust the liquid (after sieving) as best as possible. I don't recall there being much liquid at all. Thanks for the reviews - sorry it didn't work out.”
