Oh Great Grandma’s Cheese Pie.
Ever since I was a little girl when my Dad’s Italian family would get together for any holiday, Cheese pie was ALWAYS there. Some other favorite’s that always made it were
and so much more, but I was always fondest of that cheese pie. My Mom took it upon herself per my Dad’s request to learn everything my great Grandma and Grandma cooked! So as she would bake the cheese pie’s I would join in and help. Squishing that butter and flower together with my little fingers, pouring the sugar and cream cheese in the blender, smelling the cinnamon mix with that creamy goodness of cheese pie that is, and anticipating the slice I would get after our family dinner. Oh yes, Very sweet memories indeed.
Here is the recipe sent via E-mail to me from my Mom almost 6 years ago after the hubs and I got married and well, I wanted to recreate that holiday treat. So I’m sharing this beloved recipe from my dear Great Grandma Angelina to you. Trust me, it will be a favorite indeed, you might want to make two. I could barely save 1 piece to take a photo of!
Love you Marian!
Happy after Thanksgiving, Happy holidays and Merry Christmas! From our house to yours<3
