I make PIE

I made pie. Generally I don't bake but I have been wanting to cook recently and a recipe caught my eye. Generally I'm a cake guy with the exception of pumpkin pie. I will eat apple pie from time to time but given a choice I go cake. Well I recently stumbled across an interesting southern fact I didn't know about. Confederos. Well I posted on a forum and someone posted a recipe for vinegar pie. Well, I thought to myself, that sounds nasty enough to eat. So I went to the store, bought a pyrex pie rest, and pie crust (not gonna make that from scratch yet) and cooked. Overall it tasted mostly like a lemon meringue pie without meringue, and something else. I used apple cider vinegar which may have affected the taste, but overall I enjoyed a slice of it. I don't think I could each much more at a sitting but one slice was all right. Here is the recipe as well as the comments I left on the board.

4 eggs beaten
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 cup cold water
2 1/2 tbsp butter (warmed to liquid)
5 tbsp vinegar

Sift flour and sugar together. Add water while stiring the mixture.
Add the butter and mix. Spoon in 1 tbsp at a time of vinegar until mixed.
Stir in the beaten eggs.

Put on stove over medium to slightly below medium heat stiring constantly until about the consistancy of batter. pour into pie crust and bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes. The pie crust will turn golden which will indicate that the pie is done.

I am not a very good baker and my custard wasn't perfect. Little bits cooked into scrambled eggs so I used a skimmer to pull out the cooked parts when I poured the custard into the pie crust.

I think I would like to make some savory pies. I've never had meat pies or the like so I think it would an interesting flavor and an interesting new hobby.

I'm also going to start cooking pear preserves. I'll post about that as I do it.
