Author Notes

This is a Delicious recipe passed down from my Grandmother. I would visit her in Wisconsin every summer for a month. She taught me how to bake and all of her secret recipes. This is a favorite of all of ours. We have it about 4 times a year. So it makes it extra special when we do have it. The crust is the most wonderful crust I have ever tasted and so simple to make. —jmhanks
