Some of my fondest baking memories involve my grandmother since she is the person who taught me and fostered the passion I now have for baking today. One of my favorites involved the making of what we call Poor-Man's Pie in my family. Weekends were often spent with my grandparents and pies were always made on the weekends. I would help Grandma peel apples, pit cherries or peaches and cut the lard into the flour for the dough. There was always a little bit of pie dough left over after the big pies were made. Grandma had a special set of small pie pans, just right for us kids, and she would give me the left-over dough so I could make my own pie. The filling consisted of evaporated milk, flour, sugar, cinnamon and a dab of butter on top...Poor-Man's Pie...comfort food that was best warm from the oven, so sweet and silky as it slid down your throat and best served with a cup of hot coffee full of sugar and cream. Something so special and only served from the heart at Grandma's place.

This sounds just like what my Mom and granny made when I was little about 50 years ago, only they put peeled apple halve over the milk mixture and called it Apple Tart, it is awesome! I will try and post the recipe here in the very near future! I have never seen it in a cookbook and I have a lot ha ha ! God Bless!

I used to love it when my mom gave me the left over pie crust dough. I would roll it out and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on it. she would bake it for me. I thought that I was making cookies. They tasted pretty good, too.
