  • 1 pound light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 pie crusts or 1 deep dish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare pie pan with pie dough.
  3. Whisk together eggs and add in sugar, butter, and vanilla.
  4. Whisk together until combined well and smooth.
  5. Pour into pie pan. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until golden brown. Update: It might need longer. Check to see that pie is baked through (it will be gooey but it should be set).
  6. Note: You may need to put aluminum foil around pie crust edges to prevent them from getting too brown. I often allow it to cool and then refrigerate it to set up further. Then I warm slightly before serving. If you make 1 deep dish (instead of 2 regular pies), then increase baking time slightly. 

Recipe Notes

You may need to cook your pie longer, but know that it will set up while cooling! This recipe yields TWO pies.
