My paternal grandmother, Juliette Bethel Ryan, was a good cook.  I have lots of memories from my childhood of being in her kitchen and watching Granny with her cotton apron making something.  This recipe with only seven ingredients (plus a ready made pie shell) is one of the easiest deserts I know.  It smells wonderful in the oven.  And it last for up to a week if you keep it refrigerated.  It's best warm or at room temperature.  
After a day in the dentist chair getting a crown on a upper molar I am longing for something special from the oven.  Let me know if you give this recipe a try.
