Sugar Milk Pie

I found this recipe in my late Mom’s recipe box.  It was cut out of a newspaper….very old and yellowed.  I wish it would have had a date, I bet it was from the depression (the one in 1929) or maybe even earlier.  It was so fragile I was almost afraid to pick it up.  Reading the ingredients, I was intrigued.  A pie with only 3 ingredients?  I had to try it!

It is similar to a custard pie, but not as heavy.  I usually put cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg in mine, though I have made it with coconut, which is delicious!  It really is versatile, you can even make a chocolate version by adding cocoa powder and chocolate chips sprinkled on top.  My husband’s favorite is orange, I just put a few drops of orange extract in the filling and zest some orange peel on top.


    2/3 cup sugar
    1/3 cup flour
    2 cups real cream
    Pie shell (homemade or store bought)


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    Combine sugar and flour in a mixing bowl
    Hand wisk in cream a bit at a time
    When thoroughly mixed, pour into pie shell
    Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until the filling is set

You can serve it hot, but I prefer to chill mine and serve it cold with some nice hot tea.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!

  1. Do you mean light cream or heavy cream...or even half and half?
