Grandma Pruit’s Vinegar Pie
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling
I haven’t made this pie but want to comment to Kay. What a sweet thing you did for that elderly gentleman. There should be more people like you.
Oh my goodness!!!!! I thought this recipe was lost forever. Almost 40 years ago an elderly widower in our neighborhood would stop by for coffee every afternoon. One day he arrived with a handwritten recipe handed down through several generations of family to his late wife. He asked if I could make it for him as he missed it and he couldn't bake. I was skeptical VINEGAR PIE????? However, I agreed to try to make it for him. I had the Pie ready with a fresh pot of coffee. OMG! that old man was so delighted. the smile on his face was priceless. With every spoonful, you could see the memories come over him. Even my picky kids and husband became fans of Vinegar Pie. Unfortunately, we moved away, I lost the recipe during the move and when I tried to contact the old gentleman I learned he had passed. When I saw this recipe I couldn't make it fast enough. I is exactly as I remember it. Oddly, this pies flavor is similar to Buttermilk Pie and has a hint of Apple Pie without the apples akined to Mock Apple Pie made with Ritz crackers. This recipe is probably older than the depression era and earns FIVE STARS in my book . YUM!!!!!! Granny Crosspatch Way out in West Texas
Not worth all the work.
what does this pie taste like?
Nice recipe !!!
