AMISH BROWN SUGAR PIE

  • 1 unbaked 8-inch pie shell
  • 1 C brown sugar
  • 3 Tbl all-purpose flour
  • 1 can evaporated milk (12 oz)
  • 2? Tbl butter
  • speck of salt
  • ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350?. In the pie shell, place the brown sugar, flour, and salt. Mix with your fingers. Pour the evaporated milk over the flour and sugar, but do not stir or mix this in. Dot with butter, and drift cinnamon liberally over all. Bake for 50 minutes, or until the filling just bubbles up on the middle. The filling will never completely set, but that’s the way it’s supposed to be. This pie is better eaten at room temperature.


NOTE: Recipe can be doubled and prepared in a 10-inch pie shell. For that size, bake 1 hour and 20 minutes.
