Description

My Great-Grandmama made this for every holiday. The recipe died with her so I spent several years trying to figure it out. I finally got something just as yummy as her “original”.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • ¾ cups White Sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 2-¼ cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • Prepared Pie Crust

Preparation

Mix cornstarch and sugar. Add 4 tablespoons of melted butter and heavy cream. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thick and creamy. This part is tricky because the custard can scorch if it’s not whisked constantly. Quickly stir in vanilla while continuing to whisk.

Pour filling into prepared pie crust.

Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter over top and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Put under broiler until butter bubbles and surface starts to brown.

Put in refrigerator to chill for a minimum of 4 hours or until center sets.

Can’t wait to try this out for our Thanksgiving meal – we are Hoosiers, and are constantly looking for the recipe that reminds us of home. Can’t wait to give it a try!

THIS is the recipe I’ve used for some time. Some cooks will say “that’s cheating”, but I’m telling you…it is so good! My family turned noses up a bit at first, until after the first bite..and a slight smile. The second bite and they are all over for the recipe!

This can be quite rich, so often I will bake my crust in a tart pan (removable bottom, 12″), add the filling and broil as above. It i so good and the perfect ration of crust to filling, not too sweet!

I made a couple of these for a bake sale, and the pies sold within the first hour and a half. I then made one for just my family, and it was gone within two days. Absolutely delicious! Nicely rich and creamy and absolutely so simple to make. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
