JEFFERSON DAVIS PIE
Luby's Cafeteria Copycat Recipe
Makes 1 Pie
2 cups brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup half and half
2 tablespoons butter
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon lemon juice, fresh is best
1/2 teaspoon lemon rind, grated
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
whipped cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, thoroughly blend sugar, flour and nutmeg. Stir in half and half. Add eggs; mix well. Add lemon juice, peel and margarine. Beat well to blend. Pour into pie shell. Bake for 45 minutes until center is almost firm (pie will continue to firm up during the cooling process). If the pie crust edges brown too quickly, cover with strips of aluminum foil. Serve with whipped cream.
