A spicy custard pie. My dad was from Montana and he, too, enjoyed this pie.

---- extra stars because this delicious pie deserves 10 of them in my recipe book!!! My Mom actually cried when she tasted the first piece. Seems my Great Great Aunt made the same pie back when my Mom was growing up. I'd say the Sour Cream Custard Pie is very similar to Mincemeat in taste. Nice thing you don't have to pick around those mysterious hunks and chunks of "scary things" that lurk under the top crust of a Mince Pie... This is a very easy quick and EXTREMELY TASTY pie. Thank You Suzanne for submitting this recipe and for bringing back some happy momories of her youth to my Mom. Read More

This was very yummy and we all ate our portions quickly and happily. I did add extra cinnamon which was probably unnecessary but I have a major weakness for cinnamon and I always add extra to recipes that call for it. Read More

I really enjoyed this custard pie. I used whole eggs and it made the pie change a little darker in color but the flavor was really excellent. I also tried it a second time but used fresh pitted halved bing cherries (since they were in season). Yummy. I see using this dessert a few times a year... it really works for any season. Read More

Great recipe very easy and delicious. I really enjoyed it and this is a hit with the whole family. I have been looking for a sour cream raisin pie recipe for my father for years and this is as close as the one granny used to make. Thank you. Read More
