Recipes from Martha Ruth Leonard
Old Fashioned Egg Custard
1 unbaked pie shell
butter (size of an egg)
eggs, sugar, flour, butter, milk and vanilla, pour in pie shell. Bake
until it is done all around edges, leaving a spot in the center about
the size of a silver dollar that still shakes. This is the secret -- do
not overcook! Bake at 10 minutes at 400°, reduce heat to 350° bake
10-15 minutes longer.
Peanut Butter Pie
18-oz. jar crunchy peanut butter
1 lb. box powdered sugar
Mix Cool Whip and powdered sugar together in large bowl. Add in cream cheese and peanut butter. Mix well with electric mixer. Pour into pie crusts. Chill about 1 hour, then serve.
