Tears on Your Pillow Pie

Are you a pie fan? I adore pie and much prefer it to cake. Cake is so often dry and boring — but pie is never dull and it’s got WAY more of the good stuff. After all, if you are going to be bad and indulge (Now, why is that a bad thing again??), then why not go for the best? This pie won’t let you down. It’s delicate texture and yummy goodness will keep you smiling all day long! Special thanks to my Aunt Nancy for giving me her mother’s recipe!

Gather together the following ingredients:

1/3 cup salted butter, melted

1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed

2 room-temp eggs (Free range — of course!)

1 Tbsp all-purpose unbleached flour or graham flour

1/2 cup evaporated milk

1 9-inch pie crust or four mini pie shells

Make your pie crust. Need a recipe? Click here.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Beat butter, sugar, eggs, flour, and milk until well-blended. Pour into unbaked pie shells.

Bake 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Do not open the oven door! Turn off the oven and set the timer for 45 minutes. Check the pie. If it has not set up then let it stay in the oven (remember — NO HEAT) another fifteen minutes. Serve right away or chilled.

So easy! So good!!!! Now just pick which hip you plan on this going to and dig in!

  • Valarie Lea - Oh my gosh this sounds like my kind of pie! Simple, Sugary, and Buttery 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Marlene - Hi Lacy,
    This looks absolutely scrumptious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As to which hip. I am not sure. Would prefer balanced. ha ha haReplyCancel

  • Paulette - YUM! I’m like you, much prefer pies to cakes. This looks great. It sounds somewhat – kind – of -like Suzanne McMinn’s Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pie except hers has buttermilk. I’ve made it, it’s also incredible.ReplyCancel

  • Robin - Hey Miss Lacy! :mrgreen:

    That looks WAY yummo! I’ll keep this recipe in my mental notes to come back to when we have more of the ingredients. 😀

    Have a super day, Hugs, RobinReplyCancel

  • Barb - Lacy, it looks yummy! I’ve never hear of it before! Pretty rich too, eh?
    Just might have to try this after I try your soap!!
    Have a great day because you are such a great Lady, and you deserve it!

  • Leah - Oh, that looks so good! I don’t really eat cake or pie that often, when I do have cake it HAS to be from a local bakery around here. I nearly cried when they closed a couple years ago when the owner retired. The community was so upset over it, his son decided to take over and re-opened, gave all the previous employees their jobs back if they wanted and it’s been going strong since and he’s kept everything the same as when his dad owned it. SO yummy!

    This is definitely going into my “trying it soon” list of recipes!

    PS I have replied to all your comments on my blog. =)ReplyCancel

  • marky - Honestly Lacy, I don’t know how you do it.. Soap, pie, canning,you do so much… I want to grow up and be like you! LOL

  • Sheri - You haven spoken to and woken up my inner pie fiend. This looks wonderful!! Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • shelli - I too prefer pie, but sometimes a cake is a must have. Especially dark chocolate cake with chocolate ganache frosting….mmmm…I digress….To make your cake moist, right after you bake the cake, let it cool for about 10 minutes. Then put it the the freezer overnight. I cover mine tightly with plastic wrap. Then when I’m ready to frost it, I take it out and thaw it (if I’m needing to serve it soon) or frost it frozen then let it defrost in the refrigerator or on the counter. You will find that yes in fact, you do have a moist cake. That’s all it takes. Why didn’t our Moms tell us that? I had to wait until I met my friend Linda to find out. Sometimes I like the cake a little drier, like when I want to have it in a bowl with milk over it…now I’m hungry…ReplyCancel
