Amish Holidays-Amish Cookery
While we’re learning from the Amish, I thought it would be fun to exchange a recipe. A sweet friend of mine collects cookbooks (thanks, Connie). She was going through her boxes recently and found a very old paper cookbook from Nappanee, Indiana. The following is one of the recipes.
Brown Sugar Pie
Fill unbaked pie shell a little more than half full with a mixture of brown and white sugar. Add 2 tbsp flour and 1/2 tsp salt, mix with fingers. Add enough milk to dissolve sugar, allowing enough room for it to boil up while baking. Dot with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Pecans on top are good. Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes.
Anyone brave enough to try it? My goodness! If you do, I suggest a small piece so your blood sugar doesn’t go too high! lol.
So tell me the NAME of your favorite Thanksgiving food. : )
ps-Amy Clipston, Shelley Shepard Gray and I finish our Amish Country Holiday Tour today in Lancaster, PA. Thank you to everyone who has come out on the tour stops and all of you who have followed us here and on facebook.
