This recipe was found in a box of recipes that were used in the cafe we own back in the early 1950's, when it was know as Mount Aire Camp. Since then, the pie has been on our menu.—David Heilemann, Eureka Springs, Arkansas

"Very good - nice on a hot day. Had to use 1 cup instead of a 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream."
