Brown Sugar Pie

I couldn't believe how good this was. It was the easiest pie to throw together, and the name really says it all.  It's pure brown sugar and cinnamon cookie deliciousness. I totally winged it, and it turned out phenominal.  It has a perfect, smooth, rich filling and melts in your mouth. {It tastes exactly like a pecan pie but without the pecans.}  The only bad thing about it looks disgusting.  The pie sinks in once you pull it out of the oven and looks like mush.  Not exactly a presentable pie...but once you get people to taste it, they will ask for the recipe for sure.

Yield: 1 9-inch pie, or about 8 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup melted butter


  1. Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, melted butter or margarine, and cinnamon until well blended . Press mixture into an 8 or 9 inch pie plate.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 7 minutes. Cool for at least 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C.)
  4. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar, flour, eggs, milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Mix in the melted butter. Pour filling into pie crust.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until filling is set.
