Ages ago, when I was working as waitress in one of the pubs we were selling Mississipi Mud Pie. It was the first time I ever saw it and I was amazed.

So probably I will bake it over a weekend (also I need to buy some more flour- I run out of all of them ;/). But back to today. I used one of the old home recipe for apple pie and transform it a bit. Of course if you are not a fun of rhubarb you can stuck with apple jam or use some fresh berries with a pinch of sugar.
