This is one of these old-fashioned confections that the Amish are legendary for making. Sugar cream pie, brown sugar pie, bread pie and milk pie all have their roots in the Great Depression when the Amish were hit especially hard.  Resourceful cooks could whip up a dessert from most anything on hand and that culinary tradition continues to this day.  One of my favorite pies to make is so simple and flavorful: milk pie.  Give it a try! Here is the recipe 


3 eggs
1 cup molasses
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups thick sour milk
2 (9-inch) unbaked pie shells

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Beat eggs. Add molasses. And you’ll get a nice, golden-colored mixture.  Combine sugar, flour and baking soda and add to egg mixture. Add thick milk. Pour into unbaked pie shells. Bake for 10 minutes; then reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.

Sprinkle top of pie with cinnamon, if desired.
