Clam Pie

Chop the clams if large, saving the liquor that runs from them. Heat, strain, and season this and cook the chopped clams for 10 minutes in it. Have a thick top crust of good pastry, but none at the bottom of the bake dish. Fill with alternate layers of the minced clams, season with salt, pepper, a few drops of onion juice, some bits of butter and a few teaspoonfuls of strained tomato sauce, and thin slices of boiled potatoes. Dredge each layer of clams with flour. Lastly, pour in a cupful of clam juice, put on the crust and bake half an hour in a quick oven.—From "The National Cook Book," by Marion Harland and Christine Terhune Herrick.
