sucre pie

I read this book about Hutterites last year and at the back of the book was this wonderfully simple recipe for a sugar pie.  It almost seemed too easy to be good.

But the sweet gal who runs Boxed Lunch Book Club at church always brings a dessert that goes along with our book so she baked this up and it was delicious!

I was in need of a super easy dessert this week for Taido’s youth leader dinner, because less time in the kitchen = more time at the pool!

I’m loving some summertime!

I used (gasp!) store-bought crusts for these, which meant almost absolutely NO work for me!  Yay!

And, it was a hit.  Not even one bite left of two pies.

All that time in the sun makes people hungry!

Hutterite Sucre Pie

1 cup heavy cream

1 egg

2/3 cup sugar

2 tbsp. corn starch

Beat together above ingredients and pour into a cooled pie crust that has been baked for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for another 35-40 minutes or until middle does not jiggle.

(note: I tripled this recipe and filled two deep dish crusts with the filling it made.)

Enjoy!
