Author:
Serves: 8
Ingredients
Pie Ingredients:
  • 2 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 package (2-count) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water for egg wash
Icing Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into chunks
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a large bowl, whisk together the dark brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and eggs. In a cast iron skillet or pie plate, unroll the first pie crust. Pour the brown sugar mixture into the pie crust and smooth it evenly to fill the crust.
  2. Unroll the second pie crust over the top of the mixture, crimping together the edges of the bottom and upper crust. Beat together the egg and water for the egg wash and brush the mixture over the crust with a pastry brush. Use a sharp knife to cut a criss-cross vent into the center of the pie. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a cooling rack.
  3. While the pie is still warm, make the icing: Bring the sugar, butter, evaporated milk, and salt to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, whisking constantly, for 10 minutes. The frosting will bubble like caramel most of the time and you'll notice it start to pull away from the sides of the pan as it nears the 10 minute mark. Remove the icing from the heat and whisk in the vanilla extract. Pour the icing over the hot pie and spread quickly, because it begins to set immediately. Allow the pie to cool completely before slicing and serving. Refrigerate leftover pie.

    Its not ok for those NFL players to disrespect the national anthem and the flag of this great country!! There are many other ways for them to get their message out about police wrongs. Personally this was just about Colin K. getting national media attention. I will always stand proudly for my flag and country AND fight for the underdog. Unlike those self-righteous overpaid football players. And I love football..the game…not the men who disgrace our flag!! They are supposed to be role models for young kids!! If America isnt worthy of your respect. Leave. Yes…I am seriously passionate about this disgrace of our flag.

      Protesting is not disrespecting the flag or country. Our nation as we know it literally began with protesting, and protections for protests are enshrined in our Constitution.

      People will criticize ANY form of protesting because protests by definition disrupt the status quo (and frankly, often because they’re racist and grasping for credible reasons to disapprove of the movement to end white supremacy). But people who act against injustice are the best role models for young kids. I hope kids around the nation see this beautiful example of civil disobedience.

      It’s unamerican, frankly, to suggest if people want to reform our unjust systems they should leave — the ability to challenge injustice is built into the fabric of our nation. If you believe that, I find it hard to see anything patriotic about you.

        I think that the kneeling protest shows a great deal of respect of the values our country aspires to achieve. It is humble, peaceful, almost prayerful. It is personal and simple. I think it is in the great traditions of other patriots who challenged us to live up to the promises of this country – Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, etc. Colin K has sacrificed his career to speak against injustice. I am proud to kneel with this American hero and continue to hope for the day that we deliver on the promise of “equality and justice for all”.

        They are not protesting the flag. I’m not sure why this is so hard to understand — except that I doubt you’ve read anything from any of the players themselves. Instead, you’ve decided to ignore their words, make up what they’re protesting, and then be angry at them for it. That’s obviously absurd.

        By the way, how do you feel about murder? Or white supremacy? Are those problems for you, or do you mostly only care about flags? I hope to hear that you have been as vocal about the many unarmed black civilians killed by police officers who have not been held accountable.

          There are horrible injustices going on in America!! I agree they need to be brought to the forfront. Protesting is good, BUT men who are role models for kids should respect. the flag and the anthem in respect for Fathers, mothers, grandfathers, grandmothers, etc. that sacrificed much for our current freedoms. I hope the players can come up with another way to protest… link arms but keep standing, keep talking and fighting the injustices but not at the expense of disrespect.

            I can’t imagine a better role model than someone who honors the principles of our nation with civil disobedience when our reality does not align with those principles. There is nothing disrespectful about kneeling to bring awareness to grave injustice.

      I, too, believe in protesting but when and where has been the mistake. Too many people are believing the garbage the media is spewing and not finding the truth and statistics for themselves. Drinking the kool-aid is easier than digging a well.

        If people all approve of when and where, there’s a good chance the protest is ineffectual. Upsetting the status quo is the mechanism by which protest works — an example of this is civil disobedience during the Civil Rights Movement. This is a good satirical read on this criticism.

        Regarding truth and statistics, “The results provide evidence of a significant bias in the killing of unarmed black Americans relative to unarmed white Americans, in that the probability of being {black, unarmed, and shot by police} is about 3.49 times the probability of being {white, unarmed, and shot by police} on average. […] There is no relationship between county-level racial bias in police shootings and crime rates (even race-specific crime rates), meaning that the racial bias observed in police shootings in this data set is not explainable as a response to local-level crime rates.” from here.

    Thank you for speaking up and supporting the right to protest. Taking a stand, protesting, is at the heart of America. We gained independence through Revolution, change brought by words, by standing up and fighting for what we believe, and yes, by protests. Honoring this country is honoring that right to fight injustice, the right to speak, the right to peaceably assemble. It’s the core of our liberty.

    Just wanted to put my two cents worth out there! I disagree with the way in which these NFL players are choosing to protest. It isn’t patriotic to protest against your own country. The very definition of patriotism is “the quality of being patriotic; vigorous support for one’s country.” The flag and anthem are two defining symbols of our country and should always be supported despite what issue we may have with individuals or groups within said country. The founding fathers did protest, but not against our country. They protested and fought against the tyranny of another country trying to take away our freedoms. We should always protest and express our opinion against injustice, but not at the expense of our own US of A! 🇺🇸

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts! These players are not protesting the country, flag, or anthem. Please do read their actual words about what they’re protesting — which is police brutality and the attempts to silence protest. They certainly support their country, flag, and anthem, but feel the latter symbols currently stand for something that our country is not fulfilling. We are experiencing an attempt to make our country more just, just as we saw during the Civil Rights Movement, which I hope you have learned about and support.

      The founding fathers did, indeed, protest against their country at the time — Britain. Many, many protests since then have made headway against injustice in our own country: see John Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry, the Civil Rights Movement, the women’s suffrage movement just to name a few. Again, I hope you’d support these? They made our country a better, more just place.

        My feeling is that if we choose to protest something, it should not be done specifically during a display of our flag and anthem. Yes, there are and always will be ignorance and injustice within any country that absolutely should be protested against, and I do wholeheartedly agree with that and value our freedoms to do so! But my view is that these are individuals and/or groups of people that should be protested, and not our country as a whole. I agree that our country needs a lot of changing, and hope and pray that it takes place.

          They are not protesting our country. To be honest, I have a hard time with policing the way people protest given that it’s never “right”: it’s not right to destroy property, block traffic, or even kneel silently. Civil disobedience by definition must disrupt, but any time you disrupt someone is going to police your tone or method.

          Given how reasonable you obviously are, you might be able to notice the moving goalpost here. No protest will ever satisfy the general public who has a stake in maintaining the status quo — and there will always be reasons to criticize that don’t sound like racism. But at the heart of folks finding fault with every protest? Of folks speaking up about these protests but not about Nazi marches or a 12-year-old kid being murdered by police? Of folks finding “credible reasons” to fight for cheap Confederate statues and against kneeling respectfully? At the heart, there’s implicit and explicit racism.

            Understanding that they are not protesting the country, anthem or flag, I do think that it was an unhappy and inappropriate choice to act in protest at the exact moment that had been set aside to recognize our flag and anthem. It certainly seems pointed to me. I wouldn’t wish to unreasonably police anyone or God forbid ever act in a racist fashion, but I do believe that some law and order must be upheld. If not, we would have killing in the streets and no personal freedoms at all. It’s a balancing act, and one that I hope can be accomplished. I respect your views on the subject, and also have my own differing opinion. Thanks for discussing with me!

              But they are upholding law and order — even though in this case the law and order they’re operating within is the very law and order killing black men, women, and children. To me, this is the most innocuous but visible protest I could imagine. Frankly, if someone had killed my child (think Tamir Rice), I’d be burning down cities. I’d be violent.

              Thank you for discussing too — I value that we’re able to share.

        Bravo Julie! It’s a shame that people don’t – or refuse to – understand what the protesting is about. They refuse to see beyond talking heads, screaming about false patriotism, while the ones yelling the loudest are disrespecting our country’s original tenets and our flag on a daily basis. Now, a white man has massacred so many innocent people, yet these same people will cling to the belief that they need their high-powered guns and assault rifles. These are scary times indeed, so it’s nice to see people who don’t buy into the fear, that seems to be eroding our Constitution. Sad. Very sad.

    Maybe NFL players can protest with signs as they STAND to respect the flag and anthym. The injustices in this country are unacceptable and should be brought to light and stopped; and the sacrificies many have made defending our freedoms should be respected.

      This goal post has been moved repeatedly. There is no right way to protest according to critics (see this article satirizing this same topic). Continuing to tell people protesting police brutality that the reason you’re not supportive is because of HOW they’re protesting is called tone policing — it gives you a convenient, specious reason to continue ignoring the problem. Imagine if your family were at risk day in and day out, being stopped by police each and every week (as one of my friend’s brothers is), waiting for the moment when it was going to end badly. People’s quibbling about method of protest would feel very hollow to you then.
