Hoosier Pie: Sugar Cream

Treat your family to the Hoosier state pie: Sugar Cream Pie.  The sugar cream pie is said to be originated by Quakers in the early 1800's of Eastern Indiana. It is simple as it is delicious, only consisting of sugar, milk, butter, vanilla, and cornstarch.

The original recipes for this pie would have been made with raw milk since pasteurization and homogenization did not begin in the United States until the early 1900s.  You too, can enjoy this simple and delicious pie by following this recipe while using your farm fresh milk.
