“Pig Pie”

Mary Lou’s “Pig Pie”

Note:  Mary Lou is my friend, Jen’s mom.  When Jen was younger, Mary Lou made a new recipe to take to their friends, the Berry’s house for dessert.  When one of the kids asked, “What kind of pie is this?” Mary Lou said “It is a new recipe and we’re the guinea pigs.”  Since then, they’ve referred to it as “Pig Pie”.
