  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • One 9 inch unbaked shell

Add enough water to evaporated milk to make 2 cups and beat in the 2 eggs.  Combine the brown sugar and the flour and cut in the butter until mizture is lke coarse crumbs.  Add the mixture to brown sugar and beat until well blended (hint – I put the milk mixture and flour mixture into a blender and beat on low speed.)  Pour into the pie shell and bake at 400 degrees until knife inserted in the center comes out clean (about 30 minutes).  Allow to cool completely.
