This simple and sweet sugar cream pie has many cousins: Hoosier sugar cream pie in Indiana, Quebec sugar pie in Canada, and old-fashioned pies created by Southern Quakers. This version is made of pantry staples and requires no eggs. It is kid-friendly and nice to serve with a bowl of fruit or chocolate cookies.
