Happy Pie Day. Thought I would give you a bonus post in celebration of pie day.
This is actually a real recipe from the great depression, but you may have seen a version of this on Tik Tok, the sprite pie.
This recipe was created during the great depression where you make recipes with what you have in your household. For this recipe you need a pie shell, flour, vanilla extract, sugar, butter and water.
To make this pie even easier, buy a premade pie shell.
In a bowl, mix together flour and sugar. You also want to cover your crust to keep it from burning.
Pour water into the pie shell. Then sprinkle the flour and sugar mixture on top. You don’t need to mix.
Drizzle vanilla extract on top.
Add chunks of butter on top of everything. Carefully move to the oven. I put my pie on a baking sheet to make it easier to transfer. Bake at 450 Degrees for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and turn down to 350 and bake for another 30 minutes. Allow to cool and refrigerate overnight.
The pie is really watery when you remove it, so be careful. It will set once it is cooled.
I’m just going to say, the pie was interesting. Just sweet gooey goop in a pie shell. Happy Pie Day.
This is where I got my recipe from https://www.southernplate.com/water-pie-recipe-from-the-great-depression/
- pie shell
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 tbsp flour
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 5 tbsp butter (a little more than 1/4 cup) broken into pieces
Place aluminum foil around the pie shell to prevent it from burning. Preheat your oven to 450 Degrees.
Pour the water in your pie shell. In a bowl mix together the sugar and flour. Sprinkle this mixture ontop of the water. You don’t need to mix.
Next drizzle the vanilla onto the water. Break up the butter into small pieces and spread around the pie.
Place the pie in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove the aluminum foil and turn down the oven to 350 degrees. Then bake for another 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool. The pie will be watery but will set when it cools. Refrigerate over night.
Happy Pie Day
