In celebration of Great American Pie Month and in memory of my mother who passed away in December, 2010 at the age of 98 I am going to endeavor to share with you some of her pie recipes.  My mom was a really good cook----not alot of fancy things just "good eats".  She put 3 meals a day on the table and everyone sat down together to eat and then there was the big "Sunday Dinner".  We had dessert at the noon meal which was "dinner" and again at the night meal which was "supper".  Most weeks she probably made at least 5 pies in addition to cookies and cakes.  She was most famous for her Chocolate Pie----several of the sympathy cards we received made reference to her Chocolate Pie.  I will start with the Chocolate Pie followed by Karo Pecan Pie--Lemon Ice Box Pie, Coconut Custard Pie and then whatever come to my mind.
