Grandma's Amish Sugar Cream Pie

This pie is full of sweet, creamy, custardy, yummy goodness! I love it because I have been enjoying it since I was a kid. It's always been a staple for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups half and half
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • 9 inch lightly baked pie crust


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In medium saucepan combine salt, sugar, and half and half. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  3. In another saucepan combine brown sugar and corn starch.
  4. Gradually whisk in hot half and half mixture. Add butter.
  5. Cook mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until boiling and thickened.
  6. Simmer 1 minute.
  7. Stir in vanilla.
  8. Pour into lightly baked pie crust and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon.
