This easy cream pie could be eaten as a pudding, but then again who wants to give up the crust.

This a pie my former mother in law made many many times over the years. It's definitely one of my favorites.

This basic recipe can be changed up to make a varity of pies; Banana Cream Pie, Chocolate Pie, Coconut Pie, Pineapple Pie, Butterscotch.. etc.
