  • 3-1/2 tbsp (50 ml) flour
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) cream (I use 1/2 & 1/2)
  • milk
  • Butter size of a walnut (I use 1 tbsp)
  • Nutmeg or cinnamon if you want (optional)
  • Mix sugars, flour, and salt in pie shell with your finger (or you can use a fork).
  • Add the cream.
  • Finish filling with milk.
  • Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon.
  • Bake at 400 degrees (200 C.) for 15 minutes, then turn down to 350 degrees (175 C.) for 40 minutes.
I don't know if this is what you are looking for or not...or if it is even close, but I think it might be. My Grandmother is 96 & also Pennsylvania Dutch. She used to make this quite often. I only recently re-discovered it when she gave me her old hand written recipe book!!!
