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


  1. 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.
  2. 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)
  3. With a pastry brush, brush the crimped edge of the crust with the beaten egg.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes at 400°F. Reduce the heat to 275°F and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Refrigerate and serve chilled.
