  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar, packed
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract (or any you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 store bought pie crust, unbaked and thawed if frozen (9-inch)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Unwrap the packaging of the pie crust and place in a pie dish if you needed.
  • In a large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer or wire whisk, blend together the butter and brown sugar.
  • Add in the eggs, milk, almond extract, all-purpose flour, and salt. Continue mixing until all of the ingredients are combined. The mixture will be thin and runny.
  • Carefully pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust.
  • Place into the preheated oven and bake from 50 to 55 minutes until the center of the pie has set and the top has lightly browned.
  • The pie will rise and become puffy while baking, but once removed from the oven it will deflate and settle. This will cause the pie to crack which is normal.
  • Allow the pie to cool before cutting to serve.


Tips to make the best brown sugar pie:
  • Make sure the pie crust is 9-inches.
  • The mixture will fill the pie crust almost to the top, place a sheet pan under the pie as it bakes to prevent spilling in the oven. 
  • Use any flavoring extract that you prefer. Try vanilla, lemon, or butter extracts. 
  • If you prefer not to use melted butter, use room temperature butter and cream together the brown sugar and butter until smooth before adding the other ingredients. 
  • If you add warm melted butter to cold ingredients the butter will solidify, continue mixing until the batter smoothes out.
