The Sweetest Thing

One of my best friends, Joy, just got into nursing school! To celebrate, I made her one of my all time favorite pies... Go Joy!

1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups hot milk
3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 TBSP butter

Mix sugar, flour and salt.  Add hot milk and cook until the mixtures is thick.  Add butter and eggs, stirring quickly.  Remove from heat and cool slightly.  Pour into a baked pie shell. 


1 cup flour
1/3 cup Spectrum shortening
1/2 tsp salt
3 TBSP ICE water
Mix flour, shortening, salt with a  pastry blender until crumbly.  Add water and mix with your hands, taking care not to overmix.  Roll into the shape of your dish.  Be sure to use plenty of flour when you roll it out!
