- 1/2 cup apple butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 cups whole milk*
- Pastry for 1 9 pie crust
1Beat eggs in a medium size bowl. Add the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and apple butter. Mix well.
2Add milk and whisk together.
3Press the pastry into a 9″ pie plate that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
4Pour the filling into the unbaked pie crust. Use a spoon to mix the filling once it is in the crust to be sure all of the ingredients are equally distributed.
5Bake at 375 for 60-65 minutes, or until the center is set. It will still seem slightly “jiggly” in the very center, but a knife put in the center should come out nearly clean.
6Cool in the pie plate on a wire rack. Do not slice into the pie right away, as it will continue to set as it sits.
7Store the pie in the refrigerator once it is cooled.
It’s best to use a high fat milk for this recipe. You can even use evaporated milk or half and half.
