Sour Cream Pie

2 1/2 cups sour cream salt 2 1/2-3 tablespns. flour 2 eggs

1 cup sugar vanilla, almond, rose or lemon

Bring cream just to boiling and pour over sugar and flour which have been mixed together; boil up, add yolks of eggs, heat to thicken but do not boil; add flavoring, turn into baked crust. Meringue with whites of eggs.

White Cream Pie

whites of 3 eggs 1/2 - 1 cup sugar

2 1/2 cups rich milk, 1/3 cup sugar, 3 eggs, salt. Dusting of coriander or anise, or any suitable flavoring.

Custard Pie that Makes Its Own Crust

1 1/2 pt. rich milk (or scant 1 1/2 pt. skimmed milk and 1 1/2 tablespn. of butter), 1/3 - 1/2 cup sugar, 3 eggs, 4 tablespns. flour, salt; almond, lemon or coriander flavoring. Mix ingredients, stirring flour with milk and pour into an oiled pie pan. Bake very slowly.

The flour will settle to the bottom and form a delicate crust.

Use 1 more egg, mix ingredients with 2 whole eggs and 2 yolks more, then add the 2 whites stiffly-beaten, at the last. This makes a more attractive pie.

Custard Pie Without Milk

4 eggs, 3 or 4 tablespns. sugar, salt, 1 pt. boiling water, flavoring. Beat 2 whole eggs and 2 more yolks with sugar and salt, pour boiling water over gradually, stirring, pour into crust, dust with coriander, bake; meringue with whites of 2 eggs. Vanilla, lemon or orange flavoring may be used in the pie. The whites may be beaten stiff and stirred into the filling before baking instead of adding the meringue.

1 cup well cooked rice 4 tablespns. sugar vanilla, or no flavor

Dust with coriander sometimes. May beat eggs separate and add whites last. One crust.
