This recipe is a dandy one to have on hand! You can make it ahead or make it and freeze it. It can also bake while you're attending church, then be ready for a brunch with friends afterward.
Our town's small...but it's full of community spirit! We have two boys in college and a girl in high school.
To be truthful, asparagus is my least favorite vegetable. But I make an exception with this recipe my mom and I came up with together. The ham and cheese really lend a tasty difference.
Now that our parents are retired, my brothers and I have taken over the family farm. We milk 200 Holsteins.
We live along a 130-year-old railroad track (our house once was a train station) and during a couple weeks every year, it is edged with wild raspberries. I use those raspberries for this incredibly delicious pie. —Kathy Jones, West Winfield, New York
This recipe came from the best cook in West Virginia—my mother! I just added a little to her ingredients.
I'm a widow, and my grown children live in another state. So mostly I make my custard pie for church and club functions. It's the most different pie of all the ones in my collection.
When I was a girl, my mother, sister and I made mini cream puffs. Now, instead of several little puffs, I make one big pie for big appetites. Since we're dairy farmers, it's doubly popular!
Our children are 6, 3 and 1.
Each year, we grow quite a bit of rhubarb...so the main ingredient when I make this pie is homegrown! It's my favorite rhubarb dessert come spring.
We have six grown children, one who's 15 and five grandchildren.
You'll find this pie's very convenient for taking to a covered-dish supper, picnic, etc. But be prepared—people always ask for a copy of the recipe!
Attending auction sales together is a fun hobby for my husband and me.
One bite and people marvel over this pie. Some even say it reminds them of cheesecake. The recipe was shared by a friend; now, I'm glad to do the same.
My husband's a veterinarian—and a good sport about trying mew dishes!
I've yet to meet a person who doesn't have room for a piece of this pie! Up here 8,000 feet in the Rockies, my husband and I are enjoying retirement. We're active in our little church (where I try all my recipes on people who love to eat!). We have four grown children and 11 grandchildren. —Jean Lockwood, Bayfield, Colorado
