Joshua and Owen’s Kitchen Kung Fu: Marlborough Pie

   Here’s a photo of Joshua and Owen making pie crust. We chose a recipe for both the crust and filling from the Farm Journal’s Complete Pie Cookbook, 1965. The filling is lemon and applesauce, and very tasty. Our only issue with this recipe was that it took about 25 minutes longer to cook than the recipe suggested to be baked all the way through.

Flaky Pastry for 1-Crust Pie

1 c. sifted flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1/3 c. plus 1 tblsp. vegetable shortening

2 – 2 1/2 tblsp. cold water.

Combine ingredients except water. Use pastry cutter, and add water as the dough starts to come together. Take ball of dough and roll it out on a lightly floured surface until the crust is large enough for a 8-9″ pie pan. Fold the dough and drape gently over the pie pan, covering all places and up the sides.

Marlborough Pie

1 c. unsweetened applesauce

3 tblsp. lemon juice

1/2 tsp. lemon peel

1 c. sugar

4 eggs, slightly beaten

2 tblsp. butter, melted

1/2 tsp. salt

Chill pie shell while preparing filling. Combine applesauce, lemon juice and peel, sugar, eggs, butter and salt. Blend thoroughly and pour into pastry lined pie pan.Bake in 450F oven 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350F and bake 25 – 40 minutes longer, or until silver knife inserted halfway between center and edge of pie comes out clean. This will have the consistency of jelly.

    I had never heard of a pie like this, looks very interesting. Love seeing your children in the kitchen. Out of 3 boys, only one of mine showed an interest in cooking, Now that they are all grown he is the only one that spends time in the kitchen cooking.
