This was probably necessitated by the Civil War, when ingredients would have been hard to come by! I can remember my Grandma Bean making this, although she called Custard Pie, and my Grandma Dreher making this, and she called it Chess pie. My Mother-in-Law, Betty Rotge Custer, also made this, and she called the Jeff Davis Pie. Whatever you choose to call it, this recipe is tried and true!
