Basic Cream Pie Filling Recipe


This version of Basic Cream Pie Filling is cooked in the microwave; no need to worry about scorching or boiling over. No one needs to stand by the stove stirring constantly, either. Ive included several variations so that you can make your favorite cream pie in just minutes. This filling is also used in banana pudding, English trifle, and other pudding based desserts.

Basic Cream Pie Filling


1 8" or 9" pie depending on which variation you use
width="400"
2 cups milk, divided
1/3 cup flour or 1/4 cup cornstarch
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 8" or 9" baked pie shell
  1. Pour 1 1/2 cups of the milk into a large microwaveable container and microwave on high to boiling, 4-6 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk the flour or cornstarch and sugar together until well-mixed.

  3. Add the remaining 1/2 cup milk, salt, and eggs; whisk until smooth.

  4. Whisk the milk/egg/sugar mixture into the hot milk until smooth.

  5. Microwave, stirring every two minutes or so until it boils (a single batch takes about 3 minutes; a double batch 4-5, depending on your microwave).

  6. Stir in the butter and vanilla.

  7. Pour into a cooled pie shell, and place a piece of plastic wrap directly touching the filling (to avoid a skin forming)

  8. Chill at least 4 hours.

Variations:
  • Banana Cream: stir in 3 or 4 sliced bananas

  • Butterscotch Cream: Use brown sugar instead of white and increase butter to 3 tablespoons

  • Caramel Cream: Heat 1/4 cup of the sugar till it turns dark brown; stir into the cooked filling

  • Coconut Cream: Stir in 1 cup flaked coconut; top with whipped cream and toasted coconut

  • Chocolate Cream: Increase sugar to 1 cup. Add 1-2 squares unsweetened chocolate along with the milk

  • Date Cream: Stir in 1/2 cup chopped dates

  • Pineapple Cream: Stir in 1/2 cup well-drained crushed pineapple

  • Peach Cream: Stir in 1 cup drained sliced peaches

  • Cherry Cream: Pour filling into shell and let chill. Spread 1 can cherry pie filling on top (use 9" pie shell)
