Classic Sugar Cream Pie

Share

This Classic Sugar Cream Pie is one of my favorite simple desserts. The custard filling is flavored with butter, vanilla, and the subtle warmth of nutmeg. The best thing about this pie is that I use a pre-baked pie shell which cuts the prep time to 5 minutes and the whole thing will be ready to slice in under an hour.

To make this pie, start by combining sugar, cornstarch, half-and-half, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Add vanilla, food coloring, and butter and return to the heat. Continue to cook while stirring until the mixture thickens. If there are any lumps, put it through a fine sieve. To ensure you have a smooth filling. Pour the mixture into a pie shell and sprinkle the top with nutmeg. Bake until firm and lightly browned on top.

To make my Classic Sugar Cream Pie, you will need the following ingredients:
