|Post subject:||Sweety Pies|
â€œSweety Piesâ€ was the term given to these treats by maritime soldiers during the war years of the early nineteenth century. It was really just a sweet pastry and was often prepared for the gentry/officers of the regiments and militias.
Source: Halifax Citadel fortress cook (name: unknown). July, 1985.
The following recipe produces approximately 12 lbs of the sweets:
Mix 3 lbs of butter with 2 lbs of sugar until uniform.
Next, combine the following ingredients together:
1 lb weight of cracked eggs (whole) and
1 tablespoon of salt and
2/3 cup of cool fresh water.
After mixing, alternate adding it and 6 lbs of fine flour to the original butter and sugar mixture until all ingredients are well blended. Be careful not to â€˜overâ€™ mix!
Keep cool until ready to bake. Can be pan fried too!
