This is my new go to pie recipe! Incredibly easy. I prefer to serve it chilled with a dollop fresh whipped cream! I also use Maries Callendar’s ready made pie crust.
Thank you for sharing!

Hello! When you say white vinegar, are you meaning balsamic? Thanks!

I made this at the last minute to take to a dinner party. I wasn’t able to leave the house because my wee one was sleeping and I didn’t have time to chill anything. So I decided to make this desert because I had all the ingredients and it said it was easy! Everyone thought it was delicious! The texture and flavor of this pie were amazing. I served it with a jar of whipped coconut cream and a jar of smahsed pistashios, chopped mint and toasted coconut chips/flakes, toasted lemon rind, toasted slithered crystalised ginger, so people could spoon it over themselves. I was AWESOME!

I made 2 of these pies for a neighborhood event, it was delicious. So delicious, I actually saw an elderly woman sneak 1/3 of one pie onto a peice of foil and into her purse. This is now one of my 2 most requested recipes. Thank you Grandmother Pearl!

This had a good flavor but was a bit too rich for our tastes. The texture could also be a bit creamier.
