*BROOK*) IT’S THE TIME OF YEAR WHERE WE CELEBRATE EVERYTHING INDIANA INCLUDING THE FOOD. IN TONIGHT’S EDITION OF PHIL FINDS OUT… PHIL SANCHEZ WENT TO LEARN WHY THE STATE’S UNOFFICIAL PIE IS SUGAR CREAM. *PHIL SANCHEZ REPORTIN*) AT MY SUGAR PIE… ((SPI HOLDBIN/ 6:58 EACH PIE IS BAKED ONE AT A TIME, WE DON’T HAVE MASS PRODUCTION. SO EVERYTHING IS HAND MADE.)) OWNER KELLY MAUCERE (MA-SERI) ((/6:40 MY MOM HELPED ME OF COURSE, MOST OF THE RECIPES ON MY MENU ARE HERS’, AND THE CRUST IS HERS, I THINK THE CRUST MAKES IT EXTRA SPECIAL.)) TELLS US THE SECRET BEHIND THE SUCCESS OF HER PIES. PIES THAT ARE SO GOOD….PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY COME TO HER TWO SHOPS TO BUY THEM. ONE IN ZIONSVILLE AND THE OTHER IN GREENWOOD. ((/13:55 CHICAGO, CINCINNATTI, WE’VE HAD PEOPLE FROM TEXAS BECAUSE WE SHIP PIES NATIONWIDE, A LOT OF PEOPLE FIND OUT ABOUT US THE INTERNET OR OUR WEBSITE.)) AND ONE OF THEIR TOP SELLERS.. AN INDIANA STAPLE… THE SUGAR CREAM PIE. ((/16: 08 SO HOW MANY PIES DO YOU THINK YOU SELL A WEEK, SPECIFICALLY THE SUGAR CREAM PIE? HUNDRED. A WEEK? A WEEK! WE’RE DOING HUNDREDS OF THOSE, YEAH.)) THE SUGAR CREAM PIE IS A TREAT THAT HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE THE 1800S, BUT IT WASN’T UNTIL 2009 THAT THE INDIANA SENATE NAMED THE SWEET TREAT THE STATE’S UNOFFICIAL PIE. (( – “THE SUGAR CREAM PIE WAS INVENTED HERE IN THE STATE OF INDIANA IT IS STRICLY INDIANA. WE’RE GOING TO CALL IT A HOOSIER PIE.”)) (( – GAVEL NATS – “RESOLUTION IS ADOPTED.”)) IT’S BELIEVED THE RECIPE WAS BROUGHT TO EASTERN INDIANA AROUND 1810 BY NORTH CAROLINA QUAKERS, WHO SETTLED IN THE RICHMOND, WINCHESTER, NEW CASTLE AND PORTLAND AREAS. ((2: 37 I THINK MOST STATES HAVE SOMETHING THEY’RE KNOWN FOR, IN CERTAIN AREAS THEY TALK ABOUT A HOT DISH. THEY TALK ABOUT CASSEROLE OR GUALASH, WE JUST HAPPEN TO BE REALLY PROUD OF OUR SUGAR CREAM PIE AND OUR POR TENDERLOINS HERE.)) BACK AT MY SUGAR PIE…. ((/14:26 BADSICALLY IF I’M IN THE SHOP AND SOMEONE TELLS ME THEY’VE NEVER HAD SUGAR CREAM PIE, I’M GOING TO MAKE SURE THEY EAT SOME SUGAR CREAM BEFORE THEY LEAVE.)) AND SHE DID. ((/ 17: 54 HERE WE GO, I’M GONNA TRY THIS. OKAY. HHERE WE GO.)) YES…I’LL ADMIT UP UNTIL DOING THIS STORY I HAD NEVER HAD A PIECE OF SUGAR CREAM PIE. ((/18:10 OH MY GOD THAT IS SO GOOD. THAT IS SO GOOD. WHAT ARE YOU TASTING? I DON’T KNOW, IT’S A MIXTURE OF. I DON’T KNOW I HAVE TO TRY IT AGAIN. LET ME GET A LITTLE CRUST ON HERE. I DON’T WHAT I’M TASTING BUT WHATEVER IT IS, IT’S AMAZING. SWEET. THICK. CREAMY. A LITTLE MORE. )) TURNS OUT MOST SUGAR CREAM PIES HAVE MOSTLY THE SAME INGREDIANTS. ALL THE GOOD STUFF. CREAM, BUTTER AND OF COURSE SUGAR. BUT KELLY SAYS HER RECIPE DOES HAVE SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT. ((/ 7: 10 WE”RE USING ALL FRESH INDREDIANTS, THERE AREN’T ANY OTHER MIXES THAT WE’RE PUTTING TOGETHER FROM OTHER SOURCES WE’RE JUST DOING IT ALL FRESH. )) AND SHE SAYS WITH A TOUCH OF LOVE.
