This Sugar Pie recipe is a vintage find from one of my grandma’s old church cookbooks. It looked easy enough so I decided to try it out. The sweet sugary filling practically melts in your mouth and reminds me a little of the flavour of a butter tart. It has a different texture though.
I recommend putting the pie on the baking sheet because it will likely bubble over. I would have had a big mess in my oven if I didn’t!
I used a ready-made pie unbaked pie shell to keep things easy. If you are a pro at making your own pie shells, go for it.
A vintage recipe that is perfectly sweet and decadent! Bonus points for it being super easy to make, too.
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cream
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 9″ unbaked pie shell
- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Mix brown sugar, flour, cream and vanilla in a bowl. Pour into pie shell.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350F and bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes or until filling is set. Cool before serving.
Serve with some ice cream or whipped cream to finish it off. It’s a decadent dessert that is rich and perfectly sweet.
