"I'm pretty sure mom's job in heaven is baking pies. This one is pure comfort food! Be sure to use my mom's pie crust, or my sister Lauren's if you're a beginner, both listed under my recipes. I usually make up the pie crusts ahead of time and keep them in the freezer. Bake pies about 2-3 hours before serving. Makes two 9" pies."

This was such a great tasting pie. I actually got my own piece of this one after missing out on my Apple pie. It was so delicious. I topped it with loads of Cool Whip. Couldn't have been better!
