  • 1
    Heat oven to 425° F.
  • 2
    Unroll pie crust in ungreased 9-inch pie plate; press firmly against side and bottom. Fold over excess dough along edges, and pinch to seal; flute edges or press down with fork.
  • 3
    Place sheet of cooking parchment paper on top of pie crust; fill with dried beans or pie weights. Bake crust 5 minutes, then remove parchment paper and beans. Bake another 2 to 3 minutes or until crust is just set and golden brown. Set aside to cool slightly. Reduce oven temperature to 350° F.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, stir granulated sugar, cornmeal, flour, salt, melted butter, milk, vinegar and vanilla until well combined. In small bowl, beat eggs slightly, then add to sugar mixture; stir until well combined.
  • 5
    Pour filling into pie crust. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until filling is set and top of pie is deep golden brown. If crust edges brown too quickly during baking, cover edges with foil.
  • 6
    Cool pie about 1 hour or until completely cooled on cooling rack before cutting. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Add a teaspoon of grated orange or lemon peel to pie filling, or swap whole milk for buttermilk for a unique flavor variation.
