Things that are not transparent:
What is also not transparent is the reason why anyone would want to eat this. While I’m a fan of butter and sugar, there is SO MUCH of it in this pie that it’s weirdly unpleasant to eat.
The recipe comes from the 1955 edition of Massillon Cook Book, which is a regional cookbook from Massillon, Ohio. If this pie gives you a hankering to visit the area, you can find fun things to do there on Facebook.
I beg to differ with the cooking time. It took over 90 minutes at 250°F to get it to cook. The recipe also made enough filling for 2 pies when I made it. So now I need to find some poor unsuspecting neighbor to eat the other pie since my husband, The Poor Bastard, can’t eat both.
