Ingredients

1/2 lb wheat (soak over night), cook next morning with a peeled orange until tender. LIKE YOU WOULD RICE (remove seeds from orange) I USE TWO ORANGES CUT UP) IF THERE IS WATER LEFT DRAIN AND COOL


6 EGGS BEATEN ,

small jigger of wishey or oranger juice


1/4 cup of Rum

Dough


2 cups of flour


7 tbsp.butter


1/2c sugar


1egg and 1 egg yoke


Pinch of salt


Pinch of GRATED LEMON PEEL


MIX FLOUR AND SUGAR. STIR IN MIX IN SALT AND PEEL. CUT IN THE BUTTER UNTIL MIXTURE RESEMBLES COARSE MEAL. MIX IN EGG AND EGG YOKE TO FORM A SOFT DOUGH. PAT HALF THE DOUGH EVENLY IN A 10" PIE PLATE DISH (A LITTLE TIP i COAT THE BOTTOM CRUST WITH EGG WHITE TO KEEP FROM GETTING SOGGY)
