A classic recipe, mentioned in No Life for A Lady and served in the Catron County area in the late 1800’s. 1 quart water (or 3 cups, to shorten boiling time) 2 eggs 1 C sugar 3 heaping Tbsp. flour Pinch salt 3 Tbsp. cold vinegar 1 tsp. vanilla or lemon extract 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Set up two baked pie plates each with a single crust pastry. Bring water to boil. In another bowl beat eggs, sugar, flour, salt, and vinegar with a whisk. Pour mix into boiling water and whisk until thick. Remove from heat. Add cinnamon and extract. Pour through sieve into crust. Refrigerate overnight. Serve topped with fruit if you like, and whipped cream if you have it.
