An old recipe. This pie is best when eaten at room temperature. It is rich, so pieces are small.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In the pie shell, place the brown sugar, flour and salt.
  3. Mix with your fingers.
  4. Pour the evaporated milk over the flour and sugar, but do not stir or mix this in.
  5. Dot with butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon, liberally, over all.
  6. Bake for 50 minutes, or until the filling just bubbles up in the middle.
  7. The filling will never completely set, but that's the way it's supposed to be.
  8. This pie is better eaten at room temperature.
  9. If you refrigerate leftovers, reheat them in the oven before serving.
  10. NOTE: Recipe can be doubled and prepared in a 10-inch pie shell.
  11. For that size, bake 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Miss Annie, The only way to tame this pie is to add a generous dollop of unsweetened whipped cream! In fact I had to tame three or four pieces....=) Sooooo goood!

This was good! And it was SUPER rich! But I loved it. THe only reason why I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it wasnt done after the 50 minutes cooking time, it actually took it 1 hour and 40 minutes to cook until the middle bubbled up. I will make this again and see if it takes that long again. I am wondering if I did it wrong! THanks!

I've had this recipe for years - got it from Cooking from Quilt Country. It's one of my family's favorite pies.
So glad I didn't have to type it in!!!!
