Maple Brown Sugar Cream Pie w/ Brown Sugar Meringue
New favorite Pie!! My old favorite would probably be the Sugar Cream Pie also known as a Hoosier Pie. Growing up we I ate a lot of Mrs. Wicks Sugar Cream Pie when I would spend summers with my grandparents. Instead of whipping up my childhood favorite for Thanksgiving I am doing a New England Twist on the Sugar Cream Pie and going with maple instead.
Maple Brown Sugar Cream Pie w/ Brown Sugar Meringue Topping
Ingredients for pie:
1 uncooked single pie shell (I make my own butter crust... you can buy store bought if you'd like)
1 cup of maple syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs melted butter
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
In a medium mixing bowl mix together all of your filling ingredients.
Pour into uncooked pie crust.
Bake at 400 for 30 minutes or until center of the pie is set. If it starts to crack you are over baking it.
Ingredients for Brown Sugar Meringue Topping:
3 egg whites (room temperature)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
In your electric mixer beat eggs on high speed until foamy/frothy looking. Reduce speed to med/low slowly add in brown sugar and salt. Turn speed back up to high and beat until stiff peaks are formed.
Top the pie with the meringue and bake for an additional 10-20 minutes at 350. When tips of the meringue start to brown it is done!
Let it cool to room temp, then serve and enjoy!
