I really wish these directions were clear. My daughter and I tried making this today and were quite disappointed.

Sorry to hear that Kelly. I will let me partner know. Although I am sure this is the way the recipe is written.

I love this recipe! Our book club just finished reading a novel set in Colonial America and part of our party fun is making dishes set around that time. Our group is big fans of historical fiction and I think your website is terrific! The recipe came out perfect everyone loved the pie. Take a look on my website booknparty.com under book party ideas.
