About This Recipe

“Several years back, I was searching for a Cantaloupe Pie recipe to surprise my grandmother. Her mother made the pie all the time and as a young woman she remembers it being my Uncle Dennis’ favorite pie. I requested the recipe in the Taste of Home Magazine and received over 600 responsed by mail! This pie isn’t the same as my Grandmother remembered (we did find that one); However, was my favorite! A refreshing pie that’s perfect to serve on a hot Texas summer night!”
