For the dyspeptic and children, pie
without a crust will be welcomed
There are people, further, who enjoy
the filling and eat the crust under
protest In the ease of custards the
crust is more often sodden than crisp
The Ailing mixture of such pies are
custards of any variety, such as egg,
sweet potato, squash, pumpkin or co-
coanut and should be baked in a deep
pie plate, but without the accompany
ing crust. They may even be topped
off with a meringue.
