The classic Libby’s recipe that our grandmother’s used – but without the sugar.

I use Splenda as it works well in custards. No need to reinvent the wheel here folks. This is simple goodness at its best. Make this with a crust OR WITHOUT depending on your use. My husband does not think it is PIE unless it has crust, so for holidays I make this pie using a Pillsbury All Ready Crust and it looks super homemade. (gasp, I would never use a frozen stamped crust.)
