Can someone from Land O lakes help me with this wonderful recipe? I've made it about 6-8 times in the past couple of years. I follow directions for crust. But each time the pie looks great and tastes great but it can't be pried out of the glass pie plate. By the time you wrestle with it to get out it has torn up the whole piece of pie. I even tried greasing the pie plate with no change of luck. Any help with this problem? Love recipe.

Hi Diane, sorry to hear you had issues with the pie crust sticking to the pan. We'd suggest lowering your bake time for the crust to 6 minutes - everyone's oven runs differently, and yours may be over-baking the crust, which can lead to sticking. Give this a try, and see if it helps. Happy baking!

My grandma made this when I was young and I too have made it years ago. This is the best pie and very easy to make. I am so glade I found the recipe again after a good twenty years. My next summer card game will have it on the menu. Thank you Land of Lake
