Sugar Cream Pie Recipe – This is a delicious lighter cream pie for which the filling is cooked prior to being put in the baked shell. Real butter and half and half are must-haves for this to be at its best. People always ask for the recipe.



1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
4 tablespoons cornstarch
¾ cup white sugar
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 ¼ cups half-and-half cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, melted
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


Step 1
Mix cornstarch and sugar. Add 4 tablespoons butter and half and half. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and becomes thick and creamy. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

Step 2
Preheat oven broiler to high.

Step 3
Pour mixture into pie crust. Drizzle 2 tablespoons butter over top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Put under broiler until butter bubbles–watch it carefully as it doesn’t take long. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
