Eagle Brand Pie. (post #63297)

Back in the twenties and thirties Mom used to make Eagle Brand Pies. These were not classified as choclate, vanilla or lemon or anything like that; just Eagle Brand Pies. Anyone here old enough to remember those pies and have the recipe they could share?

Eagle Brand is condensed milk, so here is a list of the pies I found on their site:

Yes, I know that. But as I stated in my post these pies were not named chocolate Eagle Brand or lemon Eaglebrand, they were just plain Eaglebrand and had a good bit of the taste of Eaglebrand milk. There may have been vanilla or perhaps almond extract in them but they were just plain Eaglebrand pies and they were very popular back then. It will have to be an old timer like me that will remember them. Thanks, anyway.

It sounds like it was just a custard pie made with condensed milk instead of regular milk, probably.

Was it creamy and think filling, kind of like pudding?

That sounds like what we used to call "Canadian Cheesecake" when I was a kid.  They were a staple at every company picnic.  Eagle Brand condensed milk, cream cheese and some egg yolks were pretty much the only ingredients in the pie innards as I recall it.  Very very rich and almost, well, slimy.
