Sour Milk Pie
An old-fashioned custard pie with a sweet, yet mild tangy flavor.
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups sour milk*
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust**
- Stir in baking soda into milk and dissolve completely. This makes the milk sour.
- In a bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed, combine sugar, flour, and 3 cups sour milk. Add to the mixture beaten egg and nutmeg. Pour into a 9-inch unbaked pie shell.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 20 minutes, or until the center is set.
Makes 8 servings.
*To make sour milk, place 3 teaspoons white vinegar or lemon juice in a 4-cup measuring glass and add enough milk to equal 3 cups. Let set for 15 minutes before using.
