Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine dry ingredients and mix throughly.
  2. Beat eggs until very light.
  3. Add dry mixture, then cream and add melted butter and vanilla.
  4. Pour into unbaked pie crust and bake 350 degrees about 25 to 30 mintues. Unless one has a very deep pie dish, I suggest baking 2 pies.
  5. When done, they will slightly soft in center, but remove them at this stage and they will become just right.
