Sugar Cream Pie Recipe

Sugar Cream Pie Recipe

I absolutely love Sugar Cream Pie and especially the one that my Grandma made for me. You can serve it warm; but I like it better cold so I refrigerate it for a couple hours before eating. —Laura Kipper, Westfield, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 450°. Roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Line unpricked pastry with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice.
  • 2. Bake 8 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake 5-7 minutes longer or until light brown. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven setting to 375°.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; stir in milk until smooth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla. Transfer to crust; sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack; refrigerate until chilled. Yield: 8 servings.

"as I knew would probably happen, I didn't make it according to the exact recipe. too many suggestions on here got my juices flowing and I couldn't help myself.

I did use light brown sugar, 1 1/2c whole milk, 1/4c sour cream and 1/4c buttermilk 1/4c peanut butter&1/4c butter, still couldn't leave alone so added 1/4c mini semi sweet chocolate chips that melted in while baking.
this flavor (as I licked the spoon) is phenomenal. I will make it again and will do it next time exactly as original recipe states as I'm sure it will be delightful as well. YEAH! thanks so much for the really great and easy recipe."

"My husband really loved this. I thought it was just ok (which I expected, since I'm not a huge fan of lots of sugar). We agreed that this could be renamed "Frosting Pie". It tastes like a slightly lighter version of frosting. I used about 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, 1/2 C of whole milk, and 1/2 C of fat free milk (just what I had on hand). I also started off with a frozen raw pie crust. It said it was a 9" deep dish but it didn't hold all of the mixture, there was a little left over Not a big deal. I baked it about 17 minutes which was odd because my oven generally runs hot. When I pulled it out, it was still very jiggly, gelatinous. After it cooled and I put it in the fridge, several hours later it was firmed up. I will try the brown sugar trick the next time I make it."

"Very simple recipe. It didn't perform exactly how I expected it to, so I was a bit nervous that it wasn't going to turn out correctly, but in the end it did result in a very appealing pie."

"This is the only version of Sugar Cream Pie that I have come across and I've seen a lot of them, that calls for the use of 2% milk, yuck. Where is the richness and down home comfort factor in that? All other recipes I've seen call for the use of half and half and cream. Yes it's rich but it's dessert and by using half and half and heavy cream you don't need to use all that corn starch. It's about flavor and comfort factor first."

"This was one of three pies I made this morning for Pi Day. It's really tasty, very smooth and creamy. Very easy to make, too! Will definitely be making it again in the future. Note to BossieBroad: I would hesitate using a graham cracker crust; I think the filling would make it soggy. If you try it, let us know the results :)"

"Haven't made this yet, but will - TODAY - because it brings back strong memories of my mother making cream pie, although I think she called it Sour Cream Pie, so I will use sour cream instead of the milk. It was delicious - one of my favorite culinary memories of my Pennsylvania Dutch mother in her small, fragrant kitchen more than seventy years ago."

"This was my first sugar cream pie. I have nothing to compare it to. It was excellent!!! It is a sweet pie but that's why it has "sugar" in the name so sweetness was expected. I was worried it wouldn't firm up enough but it did as it cooled. It was soft, sweet, and creamy. Really nice recipe."
