I just want to say upfront that the recipe, photos and history are from
Lea Berman's blog "America's Table"
Lea served as the White House Social Secretary during the George W. Bush presidency. This is NOT about politics but about a gracious First Lady and one of my favorite recipes. I had this recipe eons ago and somehow lost it. While trying to locate it, I ran across Lea's blog and she had posted this for Laura's birthday on November 4, 2014.
I hope that you enjoy the pie as well as a bit of history. And I'm sure you realize "Texas" is a part of this too. :)
