You like pie? I like pie.

I made this velvety dream of a pie last Memorial Day weekend. 
They call it Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie. I call it Who's-yer-Daddy Pie.

It tastes like a pie made of creme brule√©.   Really, do you need any more enticement than that?
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoon(s) granulated sugar, for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1  (9-inch) store-bought piecrust
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. For filling: In a medium bowl, combine heavy cream, flour, brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, milk, and vanilla.
  3. 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 a wire rack.


  1. It can't get better than creme brulee' in pie form!

  2. do i like pie? do i like sweet, velvetty baby
    cheeks to snuggle? the first spring flowers?
    cool breezes on a hot summer day?

    no, i do not like pie. i require it.

    your recipe will make my family very happy,
    and we will call it 'velour' pie!
