      Great recipe! Better than the Amish sugar cream pie recipe on here. Not as sweet as it. I recommend that you use a deep dish pie shell. I bought regular pie shells and the recipe filled both shells. They were about 3/4 inch thick. I made them up because I had to use up some whipping cream that was about to expire. I made a good choice using this recipe. I cooked the pies for about 1 hour and 15 minutes in a conventional oven. They may have gotten a a little overcooked, but they were still really good!

      Gerschuhs was one of those old timey iconic places of yesteryear. No longer standing, it was always packed with waiting lines for breakfast and lunch. The sugar cream pie was a must, along with their spinach salad. The restaurant never just faded into obscurity, it was extremely one on the best most popular dining places in the area right up until the owner retired and the hospital bought out their property for expansion. It was so popular because the food was simply THAT good.
