What You Need to Make Water Pie

Pour water in an unbaked deep dish pie crust.


Combine flour and sugar. 


Sprinkle the flour mixture over your water in the pie shell. Do not stir.


Drizzle vanilla over this.  Don’t stir.


Place pats of butter on top.


Place the pie plate in the oven at 400 for 30 minutes. Reduce temp to 375 and cover the edges of the flaky crust if need be to prevent burning. Cook for another 30 minutes once you have reduced the temp. Allow to cool down before cutting.
