This sweet, simple pie was missing consistency, but don't despair. We found it.
Why This Recipe Works
Hoosier pie, also known as sugar cream pie, is a simple Indiana staple. To stay true to its humble roots, we used only basic ingredients to make a creamy, sweet, custardy pie without even using eggs (which were once a precious commodity). While we loved the simplicity of the concept, we encountered a few challenges wrangling the ingredients into a consistent product. To eliminate inconsistency, we opted to cook the custard and the pie crust separately and then marry the two. This gave us a crisp, never-soggy crust and a creamy but sliceable custard filling every time.
