If the budget is tight, this pie is practically free to make as it calls for nothing you don't already have. It isn't much in the looks department, but tastes wonderful . . . this is one of those old-fashioned recipes fashioned by capable, creative women who knew what hard times were and how to make something out of nothing. Bless them all.
