My dear friend Debbie McCollough writes, Linda, this is the pie I made for Super Bowl Sunday and Dale loved it...since I kind of made it up trying to duplicate a pudding I remembered my mom making when I was growing up, I couldn't find anything quite like it out there. Thank you Debbie for sharing, I can't wait to try it, and if Dale loved it I'm sure we all are going to love it. :)
