Gimme Some Sugar!

There are some foods that just make you smack your lips and brown sugar is one of them.  Can you name anything with brown sugar in it that you don't like?  Go on.  I dare you.  Well, here is a simple pie for the ages.  Tastes like down home....wherever home is.  It tastes like a little like pecan, without the pecans, so there's a little calorie saving going on.



6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cup evaporated milk
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (9 in.) unbaked pie shell


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C)

In a saucepan, combine flour and sugar.  Stir in milk, butter, salt, and vanilla.  Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil.  Pour into unbaked pie shell.

Bake at 400 degrees (200 degrees C) for 5 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking for 25 minutes.

  1. This was so good. Probably one of my favorite pies we made that night. Again, super rich though. If that had been the only pie, I would have gladly eaten more. However, with as many pies as there were, I couldn't consume as much as I would have otherwise wanted to do. Thanks for posting this, Mom!
