    That is a pretty picture, Shalina, and the pie looks delicious. Are there any accompaniments that are often served with this (like ice cream, whipping cream, etc), or is it served alone? I imagine it would be rich enough without anything else on the plate.
    I want to make this for the coming weekend. Thanks for sharing!

      We usually just have it as it is. Young and adults enjoy it much. Am sure you will too! :)
