Asking if Southerners love pies is like asking if shopping-cart wheels stick.
From regional classics like Key Lime Pie to specialties like Lemon Icebox Pie, enjoying this cool dessert is something sweet. Some of our favorites may not even be familiar, but once you've had your first bite they'll become favorites: we're talking about a Chocolate-Pecan Chess Pie here. There is always the pleasure of waiting for that first piece of pie to cool once it comes out of the oven in a baked version: think Cranberry Apple Pie, or Sweet-Potato Pie. For delicious custard-based pies, try a Coconut Cream Pie.
Whether you've got to let that pie set up in the oven, like our Elegant Pumpkin-Walnut Layered Pie, or our Banana Pudding Pie, or this is basically a chilled pie like a Coconut-Pumpkin Chiffon Pie, you're going to love the rich, creamy, decadent flavors and textures of all of these. Grab a slice or two, and savor the toppings, fillings, and crusts. Every one is unique, and every one is delicious. You'll be able to see why Southerners love pie—and once you've had a few slices of these, we're pretty sure you'll love pie too.
