  • If your pie crust hasn't been baked, blind bake the crust according to package or recipe directions.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix milk, cornstarch, sugar and vanilla in a heavy saucepan. Whisk together until no lumps remain.
  • Heat over medium low heat stirring constantly until thickened and bubbling.
  • Add butter and stir until melted.
  • Boil for another minute or so.
  • Pour into pie crust.
  • There will be extra filling, pour it into a bowl for later, it makes a great pudding/custard.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges of filling are bubbly. Optional, sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t.
  • Refrigerate until cold and set. Cut into pieces and serve.


Total time includes 4 hour refrigeration time.
