Sweet as Pie at Wick’s Pies, Inc.
Sugar cream pie is the state pie of Indiana, and many consider Wick’s version among the best. The Winchester-based company, which has been in the baking business for more than 60 years, uses a family recipe that dates back to the 19th century. Today’s pies are made from the same farm-fresh ingredients.
And Wick’s sells much more than its old-fashioned sugar cream pie to the food service and bakery industries and consumers. The company’s other mouthwatering pies include Southern pecan, pumpkin chess and peanut butter cream, to name a few.
