Notes

I am not a cake person, never have been! Every year for my birthday, my Nanny would whip up this pie for me in lieu of a cake. It is a family fav and we have it at all holiday gatherings. Still, nothing is better on top of this luscious pie than a few birthday candles:) It reminds me of my Nanny's thoughtfulness!
