A delicious sugar cream pie that is just like the ones my dad bought at Christmas time each year. I made this for my work Christmas party and it was the first pie to go. I'd love to take full credit for this recipe however it came from the southernfood site and was written by Diana Rattray. I've only modified it slightly.
- Mix 1/2 cup of cold half and half with cornstarch until dissolved. Pour through sieve into pan once desolved. (This will help avoid lumps and give a smooth conistency).
- Add to pan the sugar, reminder of half-and-half, and salt in saucepan. Cook to boiling point. Add vanilla and the butter; return to heat. Cook, stirring constantly until thickened.
- Pour the mixture into pie shell and sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon.
- Bake at 325° for 35 to 45 minutes or until firm and lightly browned.
