    Dear, dear Vickie! What can I say? You are responsible for the five pounds I probably gained over the week-end! Rob made me this pie for my birthday dinner and all I can say is EVERYONE RUN TO THE KITCHEN AND MAKE THIS PIE NOW!!! Vickie, I take Bon Appetit and how did I ever over look this decadent jewel? This will go in my recipe hall of fame as down right perfect! Thanks for your post, this may be my birthday dessert every year from now on!
    p.s. another of your recipes was the main dish.
