I’m not sure there’s much I need to say past the title. Once you make this pie, the taste speaks for itself! I started making this pie a few years back when I traveled with the mister and wanted to impress his family during Thanksgiving. Thankfully, this little wonder earned a spot in both their hearts and their stomachs and I was welcomed with open arms and second helpings into the family. If you need a “recipe to impress”, I suggest giving this little ditty a try but the clincher is to make your own homemade pie crust as well! You can find my homemade pie crust recipe HERE. If possible, give it a try at home before you’re under the pressure to cook and impress!
