Grandmother of Mary Lou Owen Boddy.
2 cups sugar
1 Tbls. flour
1 Tbls. Cornmeal
¼ cup melted butter
¼ cup milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
Mix thoroughly sugar, flour and cornmeal. Add beaten eggs, milk, melted butter and vanilla. Place mixture in a 9” pie pan lined with your favorite pastry.

Oven temperature and time are really not known because she cooked on a wood stove.
