3 Ingredient Pie

What could be easier?

Possibly from the depression (the one in 1929) or maybe even earlier.   A pie with only 3 ingredients?

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.

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine sugar and flour in a mixing bowl
  3. Hand whisk in cream a bit at a time
  4. When thoroughly mixed, pour into pie shell
  5. 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!
