*Featured Holiday Recipe*
There are many things that Indiana is known for. Basketball, Corn, tenderloin sandwiches and the Indianapolis 500. I am not sure many of you know that another is the Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie. Go to any potluck or church pitch-in and you are bound to see this pie gracing the dessert table. Indiana’s famous dessert is the Hoosier sugar cream pie. A sweet filling and flaky crust bring this otherwise “plain Jane” looking pie lots of flavor and delicious taste. Make this pie for all your holiday get togethers.
- 3/4 cups all-purpose white flour
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
- Whole nutmeg
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 single pie crust
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Add all ingredients, except for nutmeg, butter and egg, in a mixing bowl and combine using a whisk. Don’t over mix or the pie won’t set during cooking. Pour into pie crust.
- Drop small pieces of butter on the top of the batter and then grate fresh nutmeg evenly over the top of the pie. (Ground nutmeg will also work)
- With a pastry brush, brush the crimped edge of the crust with the beaten egg.
- Bake for 20 minutes at 400°F. Reduce the heat to 275°F and bake for 30 minutes.
- Refrigerate and serve chilled.
