This date pie is made with a simple cooked date filling and whipped cream topping. If you don't care for raisin pie, try this amazing date pie.

Use a basic food processor pastry, a baked frozen or refrigerated pastry crust, or a graham cracker crust may be used as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound dates (pitted)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 large egg (well beaten)
  • 1 9-inch pastry shell (baked)

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Cut the dates into quarters.

  3. Transfer the cut-up dates to a medium saucepan. Cover the dates with water and place the pan over medium heat.
