The name may not sound very enticing, but this is one deliciously sweet pie with a creamy texture and a little tang. Similar to a buttermilk pie or chess pie. The acidity from the vinegar actually makes the pie taste a little like lemon pie. In fact, Vinegar Pie is sometimes referred to as the poor man’s lemon pie. One bite and it is sure to become a favorite.

Vinegar Pie- an easy old-fashioned pie

 

Pies are one of my favorite desserts. You just can’t beat a buttery crust. You can use either a refrigerated pie crust or a homemade pie crust for this Vinegar Pie. The filling is a simple mixture of eggs, butter, apple cider vinegar, a little flour for thickening, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.  All ingredients that you are likely to already have on hand. Everything gets mixed together in a large bowl and then poured onto the pie crust and baked for 25 minutes. It really couldn’t be easier.

Let the pie cool completely before slicing. I think it tastes best either served chilled or at room temperature. Leftovers should be refrigerated.
