    How much milk?

    1. Kevin

      Oops…2 1 /4 cups “rich milk” I added that omission in, thanks Peggy. Recipe of the recipe appears as it does in the book.

        What is considered “rich milk”?

      2. Kevin

        Hi, Betsy, in this case it just means whole milk. You don’t want to use skim or lowfat, whole milk with all its fat!:) – Kevin

    It’s like Hoosier Sugar Cream pie. It’s not a custard because it doesn’t have eggs.

    Yes, like Hoosier Old Fashioned Cream Pie. I have found that every family in Indiana has their own family’s recipe..each a little different, but delicious, just the same. Some sprinkle Nutmeg on top, some sprinkle Cinnamon. Our neighbor used to call her’s “Finger Pie”, because she put the ingredients in the pie shell, then stirred it with her finger!

    When I read that I had to go find my recipe for “Amish Sugar Cream Pie” as it looked almost identical. It is, except that mine adds an additional 1/4 c brown sugar and the milk is 2 1/2 rather than the 2 1/4 listed here. The recipe I have has the vanilla and cinnamon as well.. 1 tsp each. It is indeed a wonderfully delicious pie. I can’t quite imagine it without the brown sugar though as it gives it the slightest butterscotch flavor that is just soooo good. I used to make this for my Mother when she came to visit. Needless to say, we both looked forward to her visits!

      Well, I think I know what we can call this recipe now:) Glad you found the new site, I was going to email you today actually to tell you about it, but you beat me to it!

        I did and I love it!! I knew it was supposed to be up around this time, but of course I didn’t remember that on my own. I saw a post on my FB that made reminded me lol

    If you’re in Indiana, sometimes it’s called Old Fashioned Cream Pie, and sometimes Sugar Cream Pie. If you like good, simple food, order a slice, and you’ll never forget the taste. To me, it’s Heaven On a Pie Plate. In Middlebury, try it at The Village Inn.
