Pie Recipes #124 - Cantaloupe Cream Pie

Cantaloupe Cream Pie
Submitted by Amaquinna

1 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp. flour
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup cantaloupe, pureed
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 8" pastry shell, baked
1 cup whipped cream

Combine the sugar and flour in a saucepan; add eggs, mixing well. Stir in the cantaloupe puree. Cook over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat, and stir in the vanilla and butter. Cool. Pour cooled filling into the baked pastry shell; spread the top evenly with whipped cream.

Chill and serve.

My notes:You can cut the cantalope into small pieces if you do not have a way to puree. Actually I did this for years and really prefer it.
