I got this from this month's Family Circle magazine and served it at our Mother-Daughter Book Club. Wow! I thought it was great. And it took me about ten minutes to make. I actually made two of them, worried that I wouldn't have enough. It was very rich and served the eight of us present with leftovers. I gave the pie to my friend, Barb, who has many hungry young men at her house. I'll find out their verdict on Wednesday night.
