How to Make Amish Sugar Cream Pie
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- In a medium size saucepan, heat the cream and half & half together until lightly scalded (it should coat the back of a spoon but should NOT reach a boil). Remove from heat, and set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Add the white sugar, and beat until well blended. Add the brown sugar, flour, salt and vanilla, and beat well.
- Gradually whisk the warmed cream mixture to the egg white mixture, and mix well.
- Pour the creamy pie batter into the unbaked pie shell. (If you like, you can sprinkle a light dusting of sugar, cinnamon or nutmeg on the surface - it's purely optional.) Place pie pan in bottom rack of oven, and bake about 20 to 30 minutes or until set.
