Servings: 6
Categories: Desserts / Pies & Pastries

1  c  sugar
1  c  cold water
4    eggs, beaten
2  tb  flour
    butter, * see note
5  tb  vinegar

* original instructions said to use butter about the size of an egg. Combine all ingredients thoroughly. Cook until thick and pour into prepared crust. Then brown in oven. At the ranch headquarters there might be eight or ten or a dozen hungry hired hands for supper every night, and some kind of sweet was a must. Fresh fruit was almost never available and canned fruit only occasionally, but pies were no problem for the ranch owners wife or the ranch foremans wife who was often cook at the headquarters. For always available were eggs, milk, molasses, vinegar and butter and lard. Therefore vinegar pie was an old favorite. Ace Reid's Cowpokes Cookbook and Cartoons By "Lloyd A. Carver" <> on Jan 5, 1996
