Okay, if you are looking to impress company with a fancy dessert, this probably isn’t it. But if you are looking for a quick, cheap sweet to enjoy, this might be for you. These types of pies have traditionally been staples in Amish kitchens. I’ve made a variation of this pie using crumbled bread and I think you probably could add crumbled bread to this mixture, but this is an even simpler version that doesn’t call for bread. Give it a try and let us know how it goes!
1 cup sugar
1 /3 cup flour
1 1/2 cup cream and milk mixed (3 /4 cup of each)
1 /4 teaspoon salt
1 /2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together dry ingredients. Heat milk and cream. Add to dry ingredients. Put in unbaked pie shell and sprinkle nutmeg on top. Bake at 350. Yield: 1 pie. (Editor’s note: the recipe – as is typical with many Amish recipes – is sparse on instructions, namely how long to bake…my recommendation is about 40 minutes or until center is set)
