This post was originally published on September 5, 2013. Cantaloupe are plentiful right now, so try this pie. It has a unique, delicious taste. I’ve served it to guests, not telling them what it is, but asking them to guess. I’ve gotten lots of answers, but no one has ever guessed Cantaloupe Pie. Let me know if you try it and if you like it.
1 C sugar
2 T all-purpose flour
3 eggs, beaten
1 C puréed Cantaloupe
1 t vanilla extract
2 T butter or margarine
1 baked 8-inch pie shell
1 C whipping cream (I use Cool Whip)
Combine sugar & flour in a saucepan. Add eggs, mixing well. Stir in Cantaloupe purée. Cook over medium heat for 8 – 10 minutes, stirring constantly until mixture boils and thickens.
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla extract and butter. Cool completely. Pour filling into pie shell. Spread evenly with whipped topping. Chill.
