Mae Dawson's Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie


  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, unsifted
  • 1/2 pint (1 cup) whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • Pinch nutmeg
My Notes:  I added vanilla and a pinch of salt to the filling.  And, I topped the cooled pie with whipped cream and toasted coconut.


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Combine sugar, flour, cream, and milk in a mixing bowl. (Note:  I put all the ingredients into a blender) Pour into pie shell. Dot butter bits all around top of pie. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, and then reduce the heat to 350 degrees F and cook for approximately 30 more minutes or until almost set.  Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate until chilled. Serve chilled.

Cook's Note: If using a glass baking dish, lower oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
