(Pies And Pastry) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

one-half cup of sugar, a pinch of salt, one pint of milk and grated
nutmeg or grated lemon peel, and pour in shell and bake in slow oven.

Other Recipes


Line your pie-plates with a rich crust. Slice apples thin, half fill
your plates and pour over them a custard made of four eggs and two cups
of milk, sweetened and seasoned to taste.

Other Recipes


Line an agate pie-pan (one used especially for custards two inches in
depth, holding exactly one quart) with a rich pastry. Break five large
eggs in a bowl, heat lightly with an egg-beater and add 1/2 cup of
sugar. Boil 3 cups of sweet milk, pour over the eggs and sugar, add 1
teaspoonful of butter and a pinch of salt, 1/2 teaspoonful of vanilla.
The mixture should fill a one-quart measure. When the custard has
cooled, pour either into the deep pie-pan, lined with pastry, holding
one quart, or into two ordinary pie-tins holding one pint each. Place
the custard pie in a quick oven, that the crust may bake before the
custard soaks into the crust; then allow oven to cool and when the
custard is "set" (which should be in about 35 minutes) remove from the
oven and serve cold. The custard should be the consistency of thick
jelly. Scalding the milk produces a richer custard.

Other Recipes


To 1 cup of hot apple sauce (unsweetened) add a tiny pinch of baking
soda, 1 tablespoonful of butter, 1 cup of sugar, grated rind and juice
of half a lemon or orange, 2 egg yolks, 1/2 cup of sweet cream and 1
large teaspoonful of corn starch. Line a pie-tin with pastry, pour in
this mixture and bake. When the pie has cooled spread over top a
meringue composed of the two stiffly beaten whites of eggs and two
tablespoonfuls of pulverized sugar flavored with a little grated
orange or lemon peel. Brown top of pie in oven.

Cook all together, then add 1 tablespoonful of corn starch and one of
flour (moistened with a little cold water before adding). Cook all
together until the mixture thickens. Flavor with one teaspoonful of
vanilla. Allow the mixture to cool.
Grate one good-sized cocoanut, mix half of it with the custard and
fill into the two crusts. Spread over the tops of the two pies the
stiffly beaten whites of the three eggs to which you have added a
small quantity of sugar. Over this sprinkle the remaining half of the
grated cocoanut, stand in the oven a few minutes, until top of pie is
lightly browned.
