Sugar Cream Pie Cookies (Indiana)

I have lived in Indiana for over 6 years now and while I still don’t fully know where the term “Hoosier” originally came from, I have learned to love the down home Midwest cooking styles I often find in Indiana. Indiana is known for its Sugar Cream Pie. Yum! This custard-like pie is made with delicious ingredients including plenty of cream, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.

    I agree. Snicker Doodles plus nutmeg. (I am a Hoosier and LOVE Sugar Cream Pie. I will give this recipe a chance. My sister makes the best Snicker Doodles that I’ve ever had!)

      Hi Susan,
      These cookies are meant to have the same flavor profile (though not the same ingredients) as Sugar Cream Pie, according to the blogger/baker that submitted this recipe for our “United States of Cookies” compilation.
