Something to satisfy your sweet tooth~

Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie - From Nick's Kitchen in Downtown Huntington, Indiana.  Courtesy of Country Living Magazine

Makes: 8 slices.  Working Time: 20 minutes  Total Time: 1 hr. 20 min.

2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus 3 tablespoons for sprinkling
1/2 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (9-inch) store bought pie crust
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1.) Preheat oven to 350 F.  For filling: in a medium bowl, combine heavy cream, flour. brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, milk, and vanilla.
2.)  Fit crust into a 9-inch pie pan and dot bottom with butter.  Pour filling into crust.  Combine cinnamon and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar and sprinkle on top.  Bake pie until set and center is firm to touch, about 1 hour.  Cool on wire rack.

What drew me to this recipe is that it has Quaker history and has been around since the early 1800's.  It has also been referred to as desperation pie because it is made with ingredients that were always on hand on throughout the year.  Hope you enjoy it!
