Gourmet of the Delta Forgotten Pie

Gourmet of the Delta Forgotten Pie:  Here’s one great recipe from one of the most famous, most sought-after of the regional recipe books, Gourmet of the Delta, first published in 1958.  It was compiled by St. John’s Woman’s Auxiliary of Leland, Mississippi, and St. Paul’s Auxiliary of Hollandale, Mississippi.  Many of these recipes have very romantic or funny names, like Forget Me Roast, or Golden Glow Salad, or this recipe for Forgotten Pie.

Of course we have the cookbook.  See it here:
