Let's start things off by thanking the wonderful wonderful people at www.turkeycreeklane.com for their authentic hoosier pie recipe! That's right folks, this is not my recipe. I had recently heard of hoosier pie ( also known as sugar cream pie ) and it sounded so delicious I had to find what appeared to me, to be the most authentic and traditional recipe. After hours of scourging through the depths of the intranets I discovered this! Being the spice nut I am though I would add a smidge of nutmeg and cardamom to this recipe, maybe a dash of cinnamon too!... Enjoy!
REAL HOOSIER CREAM SUGAR PIE
¼ Cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 generous tablespoon butter
1 egg yolk
2 heaping tablespoons flour
1 pinch salt”
Milk or Cream (1-1 ½ cups…enough to fill pie shell)
Preheat oven to 410 degrees.
Mix brown and white sugar with flour.
Sprinkle flour/sugar mixture over pie crust. Beat egg yolk with milk. Fill pie shell.
Take a spoon and swirl it through the milk mixture a couple of times. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg.
Bake at 410 degrees for 10 minutes.Then bake at 350 for 45 minutes. The filling should be bubbling. The center should still jiggle. Be careful not to overcook or the filling will not set.
