Indiana (Butterscotch Pie)

This week in our study of the Midwestern states is Indiana. The capital of Indiana is Indianapolis. Did you know the word Indiana means "land of the Indians"? Indians lived in Indiana before the 1st French explorers arrived. We found a delicious recipe to go with our study of Indiana...



Indiana Butterscotch Pie

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1-1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 cups milk
  • Baked pie crust


For Meringue:
  • 2 egg whites
  • pinch salt
  • 2 Tbsp confectioner's sugar
  • Dash vanilla
PREPARATION:
Put brown sugar and butter in saucepan. Cook over medium heat until melted. Add flour, salt, egg yolks and milk. Cook in double boiler until thick. Pour into baked pie crust.

To Prepare the Meringue:

Beat all ingredients together with mixer until soft peaks form. Top pie with meringue and bake in oven until meringue turns light brown.

If you are from Indiana please share a recipe with us to try. I'll be back next week to tell you about the last of the Midwestern states we are studying. Do you know which one it is?
