Amish Sugar Cream Pie

Total Time

Sweet and creamy, this rich Amish pie may have a slightly softer texture than the typical custard pies you are used to. It also has a bit of a unique flavor, which almost tastes like brown sugar.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Combine ingredients thoroughly using whisk.
  3. Pour into pie shell.
  4. Bake at 425°F for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 325°F, and bake for 45-55 minutes more, wrapping edges of pie crust with foil, if necessary, to prevent excessive browning (pie will appear slightly soft in center when done).
  5. Cool and refrigerate completely before cutting (it will firm up a little more as it sits).

This pie is like eating candy. Very rich and just plain good. Mine boiled over at 40 minutes in the oven. Next time I'll use a deeper pie plate. There will deffinately be a next time!

Flavorwise - Wonderful! Creamy, soft, smooth and sweet. I only used 1/4 cup sugar for the filling.<br/>Shapewise - The filling stated in this recipe doesn't really fill up a 9 inch pie shell. I was very happy to choose Graham Cracker pie shell for this recipe because the remaining edge could be easily removed.<br/><br/>Next time I make this pie, will try with 2 cups heavy cream and 1/4 cup flour. Overall, this is a great recipe! Thanks for posting.

This recipe is very similar to the one I learned growing up in eastern Indiana. We omit the salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. We put the grated nugmeg (fresh is best) on top before baking. This pie had a very nice texture.
