This is an old recipe, so it isn't going to be like the ones you buy in stores today! And my shortcut cooking the filling in the microwave keeps the kitchen cool when it is hot outside.
My own mother taught me the pudding in the microwave trick many moons ago when I was a young teenager. Oh the ingredients are the same and believe me the taste is too, with no fuss standing over the stove or fear of it sticking to the pot and scortching.
So enjoy that same pie that you remember growing up and make this AMAZING old fashioned recipe!
