Kentucky stack pie.

Another of my English Grandmas. My mom asked me to make her one for her 91st birthday. This is a very old recipe dating back to colonial times. Transporting multiple pies to social functions and storage was a challenge . so they stacked. Upon cutting .. Cut thin slices. Its very rich and makes Paula Dean seem like a butter virgin. Sugar rush for sure

How to Make Kentucky stack pie.


  1. Beat eggs well and cream in sugar beat well
  2. Add butter and cream beat well
  3. Pour 1 cup into each pie crust. The pie that will be on the bottom fill with a little more filling.
  4. Bake 350° about 45 minutes or until
    It is bubbly and almost set
  5. Cool pies in pans.
    Once fully cooled remove from pans . it may take a knife around edges. I admit store bought is easier . don't worry about broken edges they get trimmed
  6. Place fullest pie on bottom and stack others on top
  7. Trim pie crust edges off.
  8. Icing
    Cook 2 cups brown sugar and cream until soft ball stage. It will be brown and bubbly. A bit on a spoon when dunked in cold water will form a blob
  9. Beat until creamy. This can take a few minutes depending on your mixer.
  10. Ice the stacked pies.
    If icing hardens while icing mix in a wee bit of cream in very small amount.
