B-Man, you must be a mind reader, I have been looking for a recipe like this. I went to a party and they served what sounds like this and the host WOULD NOT give out the recipe! Says its a family secret. I am stopping at the store tonite to make it. If its the same I will have to share this w/my friends :0


You are more than welcome Ohiojude… Hope the recipe turns out as expected. If so, be sure to share a piece of pie with your friend, but not the recipe…tell her it’s a secret…a recipe secret… :wink: Or…you can just share it with all your friends, which is probably a better idea…then have them sign up here to be a registered member of the forum. I can’t figure out why someone would not share a recipe with a friend…I’m sure it’s not protected by copyright…some folks are just palin odd. My philosophy…the more the merrier…and what goes around eventually comes around! Anyway, I don’t wish to ridicule your friend…she’s probably a very nice person. Let me know how you make out!
