Cathy, e-mail message to Michael Miller.
I remember my grandmother making this dessert but when I make
it, it does not turn out like grandma's did. I thought maybe someone
on this list could help me with the recipe. Maybe I transposed something
when I copied the recipe. Maybe others know this recipe by another
name? It is like a cinnamon custard/cheese cake pie (for lack of
a better description). It is hard to describe how it tastes but
it is delicious!
Thanks for the help!
