Old fashioned Cream Pie–modified, NON-DAIRY

Old fashioned Cream Pie–modified, NON-DAIRY.
Grandma Truex’ Recipe (modified)

Summary: A fast, easy and delicious, NON-DAIRY ALTERNATIVE to the traditional  cream pie, with no top crust


Grandma and Grandpa Truex
Grace and Will Truex. This is her recipe, modified.
  • 1 Tablespoon non-dairy margarine
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup UNSWEETENED coconut milk*
  • sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top


  1. Dab non-dairy margarine in an unbaked pie shell.
  2. Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl. Add the eggs (scramble first).
  3. Slowly add the coconut milk as you stir. Add enough to make a paste first, and then gradually add in the rest of the coconut milk. If you add the coconut milk too quickly, it will not all dissolve, and you’ll get a crusty layer on top of the cream when it bakes. Mix well.
  4. Poor in the pie shell. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top (optional).
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 to 45 minutes. The filling should no longer be liquid, when fully baked. A toothpick should come out clean. Refrigerate after it cools. Some people like to eat cream pie warm. I prefer it after it’s been in the refrigerator for a day.
