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.
Serve with some ice cream or whipped cream to finish it off. It’s a decadent dessert that is rich and perfectly sweet.
Have you tried sugar pie before?
