We coaxed this recipe from a dear neighbor who was a great Indiana cook. Others versions of this pie posted here are not quite like the one I remember and my family loves. So I'm posting it here for safe keeping and family access!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375º F.
  2. Combine sugar, flour, cornstarch, and salt in a saucepan (or 6-cup microwave-safe bowl).
  3. Gradually whisk in the milk, stirring until smooth.
  4. Heat over medium-low heat (or microwave (700 Watts) on high power for 3 - 4 minutes) till it comes just to a boil and is somewhat thickened, stirring often. Don't over-cook here!
  5. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  6. Pour into the pie shell (I use a "deep-dish" pie shell).
  7. Dot the top with the butter slices.
  8. Sprinkle with the cinnamon.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes at 375º.
  10. Reduce heat to 325º F and continue baking for 20 to 25 more minutes.
  11. Cool for 45 - 60 minutes before slicing.
  12. Note: filling may bubble over, but that makes the edge crust delicious! You may want to be prepared by placing a drip pan underneath the pie as it bakes.
