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


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prepare each pie pan with pie crust.
  • Lightly whisk together eggs and add in sugar, butter, and vanilla. You don't want to over-beat your pie filling.
  • Pour pie filling into each pie pan. Bake pies on middle rack of oven for 45-55+ minutes or until golden brown. Update: It might need longer based on oven temperatures. Check to see that pie is baked through (if you move it slightly, it shouldn't jiggle).
  • Note: You may need to loosely place 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.


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