Secret Recipe Old Fashion Sugar Cream Pie

Grandma’s Recipe Box Series.  For more about grandma’s recipes read my post here.

Outside of one well known restaurant in Sidney, Ohio, I have never seen this pie anywhere.  I have searched for years to find a way to make this pie.  We recently discovered this recipe in my grandmother’s recipe box and it is a dead ringer for the pie at that certain restaurant.  It is actually very easy, and you will not be disappointed.   For the printable recipe, scroll down to the bottom of the page.



  • 1 un-baked pie shell in a 9 inch pie pan (I like the old standby Crisco recipe)
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 4 heaping Tablespoons of all purpose flour
  • 1 Cup heavy cream
  • 1 Cup whole milk


  1. Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees (yes, you read that right)


  2. In a small bowl whisk together sugar and flour
  3. pour the sugar/flour mixture into the un-baked pie shell and spread it evenly across the bottom of the pie shell.
  4. Slowly pour cream and then milk over the dry mix.  DO NOT stir.


  5. Put the pie pan on a baking sheet, and place in the 300 degree oven for 2 hours.
  6. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack and then refrigerate.

It’s really that easy, and soooooooo good.

This is a creamy, delicious old fashion pie. This has been a family favorite for many, many years. It has the consistency of a custard, but there are no eggs in this pie.

  • 1 unbaked pie shell, in a 9 inch pan
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 4 heaping Tablespoons of flour
  • 1 Cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk

  1. Pre-heat oven to 300° F (really, only 300°)
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the sugar and flower
  3. Pour the sugar/flower mixture evenly into the bottom of the pie shell
  4. Very slowly pour the cream, then the milk into the pie shell. Try not to disturb the layer of sugar in the bottom. DO NOT STIR. This is very important, you want the sugar and flower mixtur to stay on the bottom.
  5. Place the pie pan on a baking sheet and place into the pre-heated oven and bake for 2 hours.
  6. Cool the baked pie on a wire rack then refrigerate until ready to serve.

These boil over on occasion while cooking, so the baking pan underneath can save you a lot of clean up.
