Spring Has Sprung (Kinda)!!!!

Well as most would know livin' or vistin' Kentucky spring is a fickle time. It can be 80 bright, sunny one day or 30 cold, snowing the next. So we just push through and keep going cause we know that full on spring and summer is right around the corner. A lot of the time on a cooler spring day I still want it to be full on spring so I do this through my desserts or savory spring dishes. But today I want to share a spring pie that makes it fill like a spring warm day every time I make or eat it.

So I give you "Southern Cold Fruit Pie". From the first bite to the last you will "Feel as happy as spring strutin' turkey". Hope y'all really enjoy it, I use this recipe for many many things, like spring get together or dinner on the ground picnic. You will want to share this recipe with everyone. Lord Honey Enjoy!!!!
