To make a yummy homemade creampie you’ll need the following:

  • 1 9-inch graham cracker crust
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground cinnamon or nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • 1 electric mixer
  • 1 large spoon
  • Whipped cream (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure your oven’s cooking rack is in the bottom third of the oven. The pie will cook best closer to the bottom of your oven.
  2. Make the filling. Put all wet and dry ingredients, except for the nutmeg or cinnamon, in a large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly with an electric mixer.
  3. Prepare the pie for baking. Pour the liquid filling mixture into the 9-inch store bought or homemade graham cracker pie crust. Sprinkle the top of the pie with a dusting of freshly ground cinnamon or nutmeg.
  4. Bake the pie. Place the pie on the bottom rack in your preheated oven. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes. Do not open the oven while the pie is cooking. After 60 minutes you can open the oven to see if the center of the pie is set.
  5. Cool the pie. If the center of the pie is set, take the pie out of the oven and allow it to cool on a wire rack. Serve the pie immediately or refrigerate overnight.
  6. Serve. Serve the pie by itself or with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Coffee and a few graham crackers would be a nice accompaniment.
