she's my cherry pie

it isn't cherry pie, but man is it good. this is what Indiana sugar pie looks like. it was so good and so very easy. look below pic to see the recipe.

this recipe is from the cookbook Heartland by Marcia Adams.

Indiana Sugar Pie

1 uncooked pie crust
2 Tablespoons cold butter
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
grated nutmeg, for garnish

preheat the oven to 300. Roll pie dough out on a floured surface and use to line a 9 inch pie pan. set aside. blend the flour, butter, sugar, and salt in a food processor until well combined and smooth, about 5 seconds. pour into the pie shell. add the cream and mix gently with your fingers, being careful not to break through the bottom crust.

in a measuring cup, combine the milk and vanilla; pour over the top of the cream mixture, but do not stir in. sprinkle lavishly with nutmeg. bake for 1 1/2 hours. (this seems too long, but it does require long baking.) the center of the pie will be bubbly and still a little wiggly. cool completely at room temperature before cutting.

the kids inhaled this pie, and my mom asked for the recipe. try it and tell me what you think. hope to post again soon.
