Very Funny Perspective On Tech/Books, New Pie from 1915

"It's a Book" Trailer 
I love Lane Smith's books! Funny! And some adults could learn from this too!

I decided to try this as my first recipe from The Lost Art of Pie Making Made Easy-

I used the top recipe, and didn't want to have to write it down, sorry!
I did also add 1 teaspoon of pure orange extract, and a pinch of salt. Anything I bake that calls for sugar gets a pinch of salt if there's none in the recipe. Grandma taught me that.




Thin milk mixture on left, egg whites on right


in the crust ready to bake, kind of a fluffy mixture, not like a custard

Photo of finished pie-
Will let you know how it tastes later, but smells very citrusy...

The pie "done"- a layer of custard about 2/3 the way up, then very moist cake:

 Flavor's very good, maybe a tad too sweet, glad I added the orange extract. My pie pan was 10", so I might do the recipe 1 1/2 xs to top it off. Will make again, very easy! Might do orange juice too...

Yes, it's good! But next time a little less sugar and more extract...
