  • I made this yesterday, and it is wonderful! I doubled the recipe (as I was making one for a sick church member and one for me and my husband) and ended up with enough filling for 3 pies, which is just fine (I'm making the final pie for my in-laws on Saturday for their dinner). The only change I made was to add 1/2 teaspoon of poultry seasoning to the final (doubled recipe) mixture. Thank you so much for this's a keeper!
