Grandmother Minnie Louise Kuhlenschmidt passed away approximately four months after she gave me these recipes - and I do wish she had given me her cherry and gooseberry pie recipes. I think, in her eyes, I was too young yet to have the patience to learn the art of pie making. The recipe is not in the order one would find in a modern recipe book. You must read through it ahead of time to locate and prepare all of the ingredients. It is reproduced in the order Grandmother dictated to me." Eden Kuhlenschmidt
