This is the perfect (and easy) accompaniment to that morning Cup of Joe. Speaking of Joe, why is coffee called this? Check out the answer!
I chose this pie because it is my grandmother’s creation and I have not had it in over 30 years. It popped into my head this week that this pie would taste fabulous with coffee and it did!! I didn’t have her recipe but one really isn’t needed, I remembered its simplicity.
My grandmother, growing up during the depression, was a master of turning inexpensive ingredients into simple masterpieces. Writing this post I discovered that I have posted about her several times and that she had a greater influence on me than I realized. I have shared her cherry pudding and honored her with a cake. I’m happy to share yet another one of her specialties with you! Enjoy it with your next cup of coffee. Serve room temperature or even better, cold.
