Why I Love This Recipe

sweet and creamy

Ingredients You'll Need

4 lg eggs
1/2 c butter softened
2 Tbsp cornmeal
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 c sugar
2 Tbsp evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 unbaked pie shell


Use a pie shield or foil to cover the pie crust when baking to prevent over-browning. We also suggest baking this on a cookie sheet to prevent the filling from coming out of the pie shell. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Note: I love a flaky crust so have found this to help, while baking keep a beaten egg white handy. Brush the unbaked pie shell bottom and sides with the beaten egg white. Bake that for 7-minutes. Let it cool then proceed on. Beat eggs and butter until light and lemon colored. Sprinkle in the remaining dry ingredients. Then add the evaporated milk and vanilla. Pour this into the pie shell. Bake for 55-65 minutes until set.
