Nostalgia Cafe - Lazy Pie
This was my kids' favorite dessert maybe thirty years ago, mine too.
It's called Lazy Pie because it's so easy to make, but it's not the sort of thing you'll find in any of today's "healthy cooking" cookbooks.
Preheat oven to 350. Melt in a casserole dish 1/2 cup of butter.
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pour into melted butter and this is important: DO NOT STIR.
Add 2.5 cups cooked fruit (canned that means) I prefer peaches, but any fruit will work: Do NOT stir.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour (top should be golden).
It's done. LET IT COOL. I emphasize that because I am always tempted to dig in while it's still warm and then sorry when I do. This is one of those things that is so much better when it's cooled. Then if you want it warm, heat a slab in the microwave, drop a spoonful of hard vanilla ice cream on top and indulge yourself in wonderful.
