AMISH VANILLA PIE

Amish Vanilla Pie is different from any pie I have ever made.  This Amish Vanilla Pie recipe was in a cookbook I got in Mississippi at least 35 years ago and I have made it over the years.  It has a great taste but I think the crumb topping is unusual since it is thicker than most toppings like this.  I keep this pie in the fridge but it would probably be fine in a cool spot in the house in a pie cover.  This Amish Vanilla Pie is good with coffee or served as a dessert with ice cream or whipped cream on top. If you like this pie, you will love this delicious Sorghum Molasses Shoofly Pie too.

Amish vanilla pie is an old fashioned recipe.

Boiled ingredients:

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/4 cup dark corn syrup

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 egg, beaten

1 cup water

Beat the egg (I just beat with a fork until smooth) and mix well with brown sugar, flour, corn syrup, vanilla and water.  Bring to a boil in a pot on top of the stove.  Remove pot as soon as it starts boiling and set aside.  Let mixture cool.

Crumb Topping:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt or about 1/8 teaspoon

1/4 cup butter, softened

1 (9 inch) pie shell (I used a Pillsbury frozen pie shell but your could make your own. Here is my recipe for pie crusts.)

Whisk together the flour, sugar, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.  Cut in the softened butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs.  Pour the cooled, boiled ingredients into your pie shell and spread the crumb topping over the top.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 45 minutes.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!
