A fancy name for an simple pie. The Amish people call this pie MILICHE FLITCHE (Poor Man’s Pie), and add a bit of cinnamon. The Cajuns top it with Meringue. Down south, we call it BROWN SUGAR PIE. My grandma had it listed under brown sugar pie. I decided to try it, and really liked it. The family likes the french name because it sounds bourgie, short for Bourgeoisibre, pronounced Boo-zhee. this pie is great for potlucks because its super cheap and makes two.
There are dozens of variations of this on the internet! So you might want to look for one that strikes your fancy! This one is tasty and easy, two things I look for in recipes.


2 unbaked Pie Shells
1 lb Brown sugar
5 eggs
1/2 cp Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tsp Vanilla


Whisk together Brown Sugar, Eggs, Condensed Milk and Vanilla. Pour into shells. Bake at 450 for 10 min, then 350 for 20 min. Serve warm or cold with ice cream or whipped cream.
