Chocolate Meringue, Sugaree's Bakery
New Albany, Mississippi
Ever seen a 5-pound chocolate pie? They make them every Friday (and on holidays) at this bakery in downtown New Albany (on U.S. Highway 78 about two hours southeast of Memphis). Owner Mary Jennifer Russell uses a family recipe to turn out the gigantic, but surprisingly light, chocolate creation. She also makes regular size pies, as well as caramel and strawberry cakes.
