On Good Friday, my grandmother always made what she called Good Friday Custard Pie. This was the crust she made. She invited the whole family and always served dinner at 11:00 AM so everyone could go to church from noon until 3:00 PM. Fish courtbouillon and hot tea were always served with the Good Friday Pie for dessert. This tradition was carried on until the time of her death (at least 60 years).
