    I make this recipe, minus the pie crust, but add pecans, brown sugar and butter mixed together and sprinkle over the top, it bakes into a crunchy topping. We eat it as one of the main dishes while warm, and as a dessert once cold.

    This is a very easy recipe and I am planning on using it for the holidays.
    The only thing I did different was to add 1/8 tsp of ground clove.
    I just liked the little extra flavour it added.
    I also used the homemade whipped cream from heavy whipping cream. It was a delightful addition.
