Mum's Impossible Pie., February 5, 2004 - 08:52 AM
Reviewer: Mary from Alex, Va
I baked this pie and ask my 12yr old grandaughter to try a piece. Ask her what she thought. Good was the answer. From a almost teenager. I took that as it taste good. I sent a piece home to my daughters house, she called me and ask what was the piece of pie called? She also said it was good.I guess this receipe is a winner. Mary.
