As a lifelong Hoosier, I've never had this pie. In fact, I had never heard of it until the legislature made it the official state pie. To me, apple pie should be the official state pie. In fact, if it's not a fruit pie, it ain't pie at all.

So I was curious what a 'desperation pie' was, and googled it.

Is this a real term for a real culinary thing, or what? Because the internet has a very different meaning for 'desperation pie'

Also, your captcha system is pretty annoying, just an fyi.

Here in West Central Indiana we call it Sugar Cream Pie, and it is dee-licious!
I have to stick with the sugarless version, which is still dee-licious.
I don't understand why you'd call it bizarre, though. If it's because of the way it's mixed with the fingers, use a spoon. Voila, not bizarre.

One of my favorite childhood memories, was Mom making this pie. She used my tiny pie pan and it always thrilled me. It makes a great breakfast.

We call Hoosier pie Milk pie in Pa. It's an Amish recipe that was developed to use up extra pie crust. It only has a couple of ingredients and is mixed right in the pie shell with your fingers. Yummy !
