    My wife and I fixed this today. It is so rich that the Trumps dropped by for a taste; it is so rich that the diabetic neighbor two miles away went into convolutions. It is so rich…well you get the drift. But it is fantastic! Thanks for posting it is well worth the effort to make.

    We should all feel fortunate that you do not sprout horns and a tail, because I could see people lining up to sell their souls for a slice of this pie. Thank you for posting it for free!
