This is a nice basic recipe for Jefferson Davis pie. The terrific thing about this pie is that it's so customizable. If you've never had it, it's difficult to explain the taste, but I'll try. It's sort of like a pecan pie minus the pecans, with a candied vanilla-rum flavor. Complicated, right? I further complicate things by adding a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves to the mix. Doing so changes the taste to something closer to a pecan pie without the nuts crossed with a pumpkin pie minus the pumpkin. Also, for this recipe, be sure to use two deep dish pie crusts (there's going to be a whole lot of bubbling going on in the oven) and also cover your crusts with foil because they will burn easily given the lengthy cook time.
