Granny Nanny always had food that she could "throw together" at the last minute to feed visitors, grandkids, and family. Everyone always went home with a "care" package of homemade jellies, peanut butter, canned goods, etc.
She joined her many friends and some family in Heaven on March 2, 1994, and if God assigns duties to His Angels in Heaven, surely Granny Nanny would be assigned to the role of "A Number 1 Cook", keeping all the other Angels happy with all sorts of good eats. Among them would definitely be mouth-watering treats such as Granny Nanny's Peanut Butter Pie and Chicken and Dumplings.
This recipe was scribbled in hand by her. Almost too simple to work... but it does and they are fantastic! Just follow the simple but time-proven steps. ...Julia Pannell
