This is in response to a memory posted yesterday re- Poor man's Pie, My Mom and Granny made a pie over 50 years ago very similar to the mentioned one, If you added apples it was Apple Tart, if no apples it was Milk Pie, I noticed several people requesting the recipe, I thought I would put ours in, It was and still is 55 years later my favorite pie, with or with out apples. 1-9" pie shell, 2 lbs tart apples peeled, cored 7 cut in half, 2Tbsp. flour (not level), 1/2 cup sugar, 3/4 cup evaporated milk, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 tsp. cinnamon. Put apples cut side down in pie shell, Mix flour & sugar together until well mixed, Add butter, stir well, slowly add milk until well mixed, pour on top of the apples, sprinkle the cinnamon over apples. bake in a pre-heated 450degree oven for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 375 degrees, bake for 30 more minutes. Cool on a wire rack. This is good served warm or cold. If you omit the apples, double the remaining ingredients and bake as directed. My late Dad and I loved this pie with or with out apples, he would tell my Mom to make 2 - 1 for him and the other for the 3 of us, that is how much he liked the pie! I hope you enjoy this pie as much as my Dad did and my Mom and my family still do! God Bless!

I have to admit I never heard of this pie growing up and baking with my family. Maybe in the northeast it wasn't a common pie recipe. However I did make a copy and will definitely make it. And for Cheryl, who could not print this recipe, try to copy and paste and either use MS Word or Notepad to print this out. Thanks Gloria for sharing a wonderful story and your family recipe.

I will add little history to this recipe - I was afraid I was running out of space, This is a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe, I grew up in PA. My grandparents and my Dad could speak PA> Dutch, my Mom could a little, I regret so very much being a block headed stubborn kid and not wanting to learn, the language is very similar to German. If anyone had trouble printing it you can e-mail me at glormon@yahoo.com or if you just would like to know about PA. Dutch foods, they are so good. Hope you enjoyed this, God Bless! Gloria

We would call this sugar pie or shoefly pie. It was always good and I remember it well.
