Oh, I have it. But you have to endure the story that goes with
it before I actually send it off. See, I had ridden over to this
rally one day, to meet up with a friend that had ridden up from
North Carolina. He was there with his fiance (he had just proposed
that weekend), and we bopped around all day visiting his old
haunts from his days as a Biology doctoral student at the
University of Iowa.
After finding the perfect pork tenderloin sandwich, we decided
to finish with some dessert, so I could get on my way back to
Chicago. He took us to this Italian restaurant that produced
this pie that was so marvelous, I babbled about it on the BMW
list for the better part of a week.
Well, someone in upper New York state also had a hankering for
it, started an email quest thru his various contacts in the state
of Iowa, and finally convinced one of the guys there to go to
the restaurant and ask for the recipe. We haven't tried it yet,
my memory of it is still pretty vivid. Use cinnamon ice cream on
