Illinois State Pie

One of the newest state symbols of Illinois is the state pie. None other than the pumpkin pie will do for the state pie. The induction of the state pie came during a rough time for the state of Illinois during 2015 when there was no state budget. But, it was in an attempt to recall the states positives as well.

The state of Illinois grows most of the pumpkins processed and consumed in the United States. Kieth Sommer sponsored the law to create the state pie. The law made pumpkin pie the official pie of the state of Illinois.

1/2 c cane sugar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2  tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 eggs
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 basic pie crust
homemade whipped cream

Preheat oven to 425°F. In a mixing bowl, combine sugars, salt, and spices, and lemon zest. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Add the pumpkin purée into mixture. Whisk or blend in the cream until well incorporated. Pour filling into pie shell and bake at 425°F for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes reduce the temperature to 350°F. Bake 45-50 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack for 2 hours. Serve with whipped cream.

  1. I didn't know IL was the biggest producer of pumpkins. Interesting! I love pumpkin pie. My mother's homemade pumpkin pie was my fave.
