Amish Sugar Cream Pie

Not Mom's recipe . . but pretty good anyway.
This will be Easter Dessert.

Don't I unroll a "pretty" ready made pie crust? LOLOL

Amish Sugar Cream Pie

3/4 C granulated Sugar
2 1/2 C Half-and-Half
1/8 tsp Salt
1/4 C Brown Sugar
1/4 C Cornstarch
1/2 C Butter, cut up
1 tsp Vanilla
9" lightly baked pie crust

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2. In a saucepan combine brown sugar and cornstarch.

3. In a medium to large saucepan, combine sugar, salt and half-and-half. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally.

4, When mixture comes to a boil, remove from stove and gradually whisk it into the brown sugar mixture.

5. Add butter pieces;  over medium heat, cook, whisking constantly, 5 minutes or until boiling and thickened.. Simmer 1 minute.

6. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

7. Pour into prepared pie shell; sprinkle with cinnamon. (Any extra can be cooked along side the pie in a custard cup.)

8. Bake 20 minutes or until top is golden.

9. Cool on a wire rack; pie filling will be loose but will thicken on cooling. MUST be cooled completely before serving.


  1. Paula - What is half and half?

    1. Half and Half is half whole milk and half cream.

      In Mom's recipe, which I will add one day, she used only milk and it is still my favorite version of Sugar Cream Pir.

  2. YUUUM!!! Thanks for the recipe, Paula. I just want some right now. :P
