I think this recipe came from Katherine's blog, but I simply scribbled it on a piece of paper and stuffed it in a pile of other ideas. If it's not Katherine's, apologies to whoever originated it, and sorry I'm such a dumbbunny that I didn't write down origin, date, or anything!
That being said, this was Pi Day's dessert Pie. The confession having been made many times, I know no one here's surprised at the origin of my crust (recipe: hunt in your supermarket's cooler case).
There was not one scrap left over from this pie. (Note to self: Make 2 or 3 of these if more than 5 people are home. Suggestion to everyone else: see above note to self.) My husband opined that this was similar in flavor to pecan pie, but without nuts; everyone else simply mourned the fact that it was already gone.
FRENCH MARKET PIE
1/3 cup melted butter
1-1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/3 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
9" pie shell
Beat the butter and brown sugar together until combined, then add the eggs one at a time, blending completely. Beat in the cream and vanilla, and pour into the pie crust. Bake at 350F for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream. Cry when it's all gone.
