- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar

- 1 teaspoon vanilla

- Add 1/2 stick melted butter, pinch of salt, and 1 teaspoons vanilla.
- Blend;pour into unbaked pie shell.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
So yummy! I have a recipe that's very similar that I've made numerous times (uses 2 eggs, no other changes), so I knew this would be good. So easy and a big family favorite. Wonderful as is or topped with fresh whipped cream and chocolate shavings. I never melt the butter, just throw all ingredients in the blender and blend thoroughly. Just be sure wet ingredients are on the bottom so it will combine evenly. Makes a great last minute dessert that tastes a lot more complicated than it is. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
This recipe was really easy. I had everything on hand, and because I live out of town that is a big plus. My two kids thought it was better than my pumpkin pie I had made at the same time! There was no temp but upon emailing the Chef she informed me it was to be cooked at 350 F, I cooked it at 375 F so a bit of a skin formed on the top. The inside flavour was great and I would make it again :)
