    Sugar cream pie is Indiana's state pie.

    Pumpkin pie is Illinois's state pie.

    Kuchen is the state dessert of South Dakota

    Allegedly, Sundaes were created due to a prohibition on selling ice cream sodas on Sunday in Evanston. I use allegedly because similar story associated with other areas. I never really dug into it.

    Persimmon Pudding

    Dumplings, there are fruit as well.

    On GreaterMidwestFoodways.com under the state fair tab are a lot of recipes.
