This recipe was my late mother's. When my mother passed away, a gentleman came up to me at the visitation and told me she made the best sugar cream pies he had ever eaten.

1 baked pie shell
1/4 cup corn starch (don't skimp!)
1 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1 stick oleo
1 tsp vanilla

Mix together the sugar, cornstarch, and milk. Cook until thick. Remove from heat and add vanilla and oleo. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour into the pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Oh this sounds so yummy! Dumb question: Will this work substituting butter for the oleo? Thanks.

Yes, butter is a fine substitution. In fact, I prefer it. But I leave these recipes as they are even though I often prefer other ways. Personally, I think our bodies are made to handle natural products rather than fake ones.

I agree. Thanks!
