Sparkin' Pie

(New England Cookbook, by Eleanor Early, 1954)

“This particular pie was made by a girl who wished to impress a beau who was sparkin’ her. It turned out so good that he popped the question, and they got married and lived happily ever after.”

3 eggs, beaten
1-1/2 c strained applesauce
½ c sugar
1 t cinnamon or ½ t each of cinnamon and nutmeg or mace
1/3 t salt
1-1/2 c milk

Combine everything, then pour mixture into an unbaked pastry shell. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 for about 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the filling comes out clean.
