The Pennsylvania Dutch excel at making hand-crafted pies and have adapted old German recipes into delightful ones like Amish Brown Sugar Pie. Sweet, soothing and incredibly comforting, it’s a masterpiece of the home cook’s craft. Pairs perfectly with a cold glass of milk.

- 1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons butter
- 2 Tablespoons flour
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a bowl, mix the brown sugar, flour and salt. Mix thoroughly with clean fingers.

- Mix the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
- Dot the pie with butter and sprinkle cinnamon topping liberally over all.
