Sugar Cream Pie...

Did you know that yesterday was National Pie Day?  Yep it was!  Thanks to my friends at Two Maids a Milking for making me aware of this!  So in honor of National Pie Day I am sharing my Sugar Cream Pie recipe with you and also linking up to Two Maids a Baking.

I'm sure all of you have some sort of sugar cream pie recipe, or maybe you make this exact same one.  This one has never failed me so I will continue to use it.  I hear a lot of people say that they never make sugar cream pie because it never sets up.  I think it all depends on boiling time.  My MIL actually gave me this recipe and it is so easy to make.  In fact, I have it memorized!

Combine your sugar...
And cornstarch in a saucepan...

Try to get as many lumps out as you can because the lumpier the mixutre the lumpier the pie...
Check out my new spoons I ordered from That's My Pan when my sorority was doing a fundraiser...
Slowly pour in the milk while stirring constantly.  I prefer to use whole milk.  Sometimes I use milk straight from our family's dairy farm! (Don't judge!  It is amazing.)  I have found that whole milk makes a much creamier pie, but you can use whatever your little heart desires...
Add in a a teaspoon of vanilla and a stick of butter......
Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring constantly.  Allow to boil for 3-4 minutes....
Pour into a prebaked pie shell.  Sprinkle with a little cinnamon and nutmeg.
Enjoy!...

  2. I use this same recipe it was published in the 1981 farm week The difference was you would bake the pie shell for 10 min at 350 add filling and bake another 25 min. You would also cook on stove but she added the oven baking. I baked one last week and it was good.

  34. I have a similar recipe that uses heavy whipping cream, sugar and flour and you don't precook the filling. Just pour into unbaked pie crust, sprinkle a little sugar and nutmeg on top and bake. We love it!
