Description[]

There was (note the word was, unfortunately) a Cajun restaurant here. We went there very often and got friendly with the owner/cook. When they decided to go into another business I managed to get his Mississippi Mud Pie recipe. Had eaten it there so many times he probably felt sorry for me not to be able to taste it again. I love it! In the midst of all the "Mud" pies here I still hope you'll want to try it.
