You Are Too Sweet

No, really. You are way too sweet. Not you, sweet love, who always opens the door for me. I like that. I’m talking to you, Brown Sugar Pie. Goodness, why did I think you would be good?

Well, you were good at first, and then you just became too much, kind of like that sweet guy who calls to check up on you but then keeps calling and texting until you want to heave your phone (or him) off a cliff. (Don’t worry; we don’t have cliffs in Florida.)

After the third bite my love said, “this pie is not for Wilford Brimley.”

Do you have diabeetis? Then let’s dance!!

Seriously, though. I found the recipe in “Southern Living Homestyle Cooking” and added my own bit of flair. It was super easy, just one bowl. Measure, dump, mix, and pour. I like that. But it was really freakin’ sweet.

I used a basic all-shortening pastry because I didn’t have enough butter. (Travesty, I know.) I also added some spices because it had the sugar and everything nice, but was missing something. Try it if you dare.

Brown Sugar Pie

½ cup butter, melted
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
3 eggs
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 9-inch pie pastry

Beat butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and spices in a large mixing bowl until blended. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack.

There is such a thing as too damn sweet

    It looks amazing though – small slices and you’ll be fine 😀

    I made this pie on Saturday and we loved it! Definitely not too sweet for me.

      Yay! I’m glad you liked it. By the way, I have Hoosier Sugar Pie on my list of pies to make.
