A PIE FOR MANY TASTES

GRANDMA'S KITCHEN, TASTERS WELCOME


When I was a girl, my mother used this recipe to make several different kinds of pie. They are all good, depending on the kind that you like.

BASIC RECIPE:

1/4 CUP FLOUR

1 CUP SUGAR

1/4 TEASPOON SALT

11/2 CUPS CAN MILK----JUST REGULAR NOT SWEETENED MILK

3 EGGS----YOU WILL USE BOTH THE YOKES AND THE WHITES OF THE EGGS. SO BE SURE AND SEPARATE THEM INTO DIFFERENT BOWLS. MAKE ESPECIALLY SURE THAT THE BOWL YOU PUT THE WHITES INTO IS BOTH CLEAN AND DRY. IF YOU DO NOT, THEN THE WHITES WILL NOT BEAT UP RIGHT.

2 TABLESPOONS OF BUTTER OR MARGARINE

1/2 TEASPOON OF VANILLA

YOU WILL COOK THIS ON MEDIUM HEAT UNTIL IT THICKENS TO THE CONSISTENCY OF A CUSTARD. TO MAKE TWO PIES, I DOUBLE THE RECIPE.

1.IF YOU WANT IT TO BE A COCONUT PIE, YOU ADD THE AMOUNT OF COCONUT THAT YOU LIKE TO THE CUSTARD FILLING. YOU SPOON THE COCONUT CUSTARD INTO A PREPARED BAKED PIE CRUST. BEET THE EGG WHITES UNTIL THY PEAK ADDING A TABLESPOON OF SUGAR AND BEAT AGAIN, UNTIL SUGAR IS BLENDED IN WELL BUT NOT TOO MUCH. SPOON THE BEATEN EGG WHITES ONTO THE PIE OUT TO THE CRUST AND SPRINKLE COCONUT OVER THAT. PLACE INTO A 250% OVEN TO BROWN. WATCH CLOSELY SO AS NOT TO BURN JUST MAKE SURE IT IS BROWNED ALL OVER.

2. IF YOU WANT IT TO BE A BANANA PIE AFTER THE CUSTARD IS PREPARED CUT UP SLICES OF BANANA INTO THE CUSTARD THEN SPOON INTO A PREPARED BAKED PIE CRUST. FOLLOW DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PREPARE THE EGG WHITES, THIS TIME DO NOT ADD COCONUT. SPOON PLAIN BEATEN EGG WHITES OVER THE BANANA CREAM MIXTURE, MAKING SURE IT REACHES CLEAR OUT TO THE CRUST. COOK AS DESCRIBED IN ABOVE DIRECTIONS.

3.IF YOU WANT THE PIE TO BE CHOCOLATE, I JUST ADD ABOUT 1/2 CUP NESTLES QUICK, CHO. FLAVOR TO THE CUSTARD FILLING THEN MIX WELL. SPOON INTO A PREPARED BAKED PIE CRUST AND COVER WITH PREPARED EGG WHITES. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE ON HOW TO BROWN IN THE OVEN.


PSALM 22:26

THE MEEK SHALL EAT AND BE SATISFIED: THEY SHALL PRAISE THE LORD THAT SEEK HIM: YOUR HEART SHALL LIVE FOREVER.

I am sure that because of the holidays just recently passed, dessert is not what you may be wanting at this time. I just thought that while I am thinking about this that I would share it with all of you. Grandma

Those all sound good. I think I'll try it when I have nothing else better to do. And the deer on your picture at the top of your blog reminds me of my dad. He always went hunting whenever he could. I can't think of a time when he turned hunting down.

Dear Young Artist, My Mother taught me how to make these pies when I was very young. They are easy and very good. I hope if you make them you like them also. That would make me very happy.

It is nice to have pretty things remind you of your Dad. My brother in law who died many years ago when he was just 32 years old and had four very, very young children, loved to hunt. In fact he was hunting when his first son was born. My sister was not too happy about it but she loved him and knew that it was him.

I have been keeping you and your family in my prayers. You take care and depend on the Lord. Mrs. Connie

Dear Lisa, yes, I have always loved this recipe for that exact reason. It makes good banana pudding also just add vanilla waffer broken up and sliced bananas. Put beaten egg whites on the top and brown in the oven. It is great banana pudding.

Thanks Lisa for coming even when I could not come and visit you. You are a blessing. connie

Hi! I accidentally (did I spell this right?) spelled sounds right. This is what I said.
Hi! If I chose a pie to make, I would chose the chocolate pie. That SOUNDS good.

Bye!
