“This recipe was the grand prize winner a few years ago in a recipe contest held by an area newspaper. I love sugar cream pie, but didn't have an easy recipe until I found this one. I used a store bought pie shell, and ended up with more filling than the shell would hold so we ate the leftover filling like pudding.”
