Chuck Pie

Who knew Chuck Pie would get so many comments? Chuck Pie is really called "Frost on the Pumpkin" Pie. I searched and found a recipe that sounds similar here. Grandma Lehman made it and it was like pumpkin pie except it had a creamy pumpkin pie-ish layer in the middle (thus...the frost on the pumpkin). Apparently she used to make it, but hasn't made it for a while. When we asked what kind of pie it was, Becky was explaining all this to us and then told us a story about how her high school boyfriend - Chuck - liked the pie and once Grandma made a whole pie for him. Fast forward several years...Chuck is now a little burned out from drugs, but when Becky saw him at her HS reunion (I think that's where it was) he still remembered the pie. Anyhow...on Thanksgiving everyone kept asking what kind of pie it was and so we started calling it Chuck Pie because it was so much easier to say than "Frost on the Pumpkin Pie". There you go...the story of Chuck Pie. AND...just for the was delicious! For some reason, it just doesn't sound as funny when I type the whole story out. I guess it was just one of those "you had to be there" moments. :)
