OLD FASHIONED CREAM PIE

I literally cannot believe I have never shared this pie with you. I had to go back and be sure because it is my MOST requested Pie recipe ever. This pie has been made in our family since 1973 when my mom was in Home Ec club with the owner of a popular restaurant called The Essenhaus. It was modeled after our local Amish community and known for it's Homestyle Amish cooking and baking, namely pies. This restaurant is now popular and well renowned all over the country and a hot spot for tourists ever summer. 
Yum  




My mom was lucky enough to be given this recipe, which she passed to me and I now make it for all sorts of people. It is an especially GREAT Mother's Day treat just in case your urge to bake a pie is firing up! I've been told it's even better than the restaurants but you be the judge.




What You'll Need

OLD FASHIONED CREAM PIE

INGREDIENTS
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar 
2 cups whipping cream (Unwhipped)
1 unbaked 9" pie shell

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Blend flour into melted butter, I like to use a large pyrex pourable mixing bowl for this. Add the brown sugar and mix thoroughly. Add whipping cream from carton and stir until very well blended. pour into pie shell and bake for 50-55 minutes. Cool, store in the refrigerator. 


I did not use my own homemade crust on this for time saving but I do find the roll out pie crusts are the flakiest. I like to put my pie dish onto a cookie sheet when baking in case any pie mixture were to spill or run over.


The Perfect Pie!! YUM!

HAPPY TASTY TUESDAY FRIENDS!!

  19. That looks good. I often used pre-made pie crusts too and I like to roll out the roll out ones just a bit more than they'd typically roll out from the package to make them feel and taste a bit more like homemade. Pinned.

  23. Simple is best. Without having even tasted it I just know it's one for Dine With Nine. I've never heard of this pie. It sounds a bit like our treacle tart. Longing to make it for the grandkiddies. Hugs, my clever friend, x.
