Ingredients

  • 9 inch pie crust, baked and cooled
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or one vanilla bean

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cornstarch; set aside.
  • On low to medium heat in a medium-sized sauce pan, add 4 tablespoons of butter, heavy cream, and milk. Scrape the seeds from the bean and add them and the empty bean to the pot with the liquids.
  • After the butter has melted, remove the bean, then slowly add the cornstarch and sugar mixture. Cook, stirring constantly with a wire whisk just until the mixture is thick and creamy. This will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and immediately pour the mixture into the pie crust and drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter.
    Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Place the pie under the broiler until the butter bubbles. Watch your pie carefully; this will not take long.
    Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.
