Picking a favorite pie would be as difficult as choosing a favorite child or parent. So we won’t even ask. After all, it depends on your mood, the time of year, what you had for dinner and why you want the pie. (Just to clarify, “because it’s pie” is a completely valid answer… you don’t actually need another reason.) But choosing a favorite is unfair. So instead, we are exploring the four most sought after pies, according to Papa C Pies.
1Southern Pecan Pie
Is anything more quintessentially Southern than a perfect pecan pie? Fresh Georgia pecans are combined with an exquisite balance of sugar, butter and vanilla. Proof that the whole is more than the sum of its parts, this pie hits all the right notes! The filling is sweet, but not overly sweet, crunchy, luscious and nestled into Papa C Pies’ signature flaky crust that is out of this world.
2Steeplechase Derby Pie
Steeplechase pie, derby pie, steeplechase derby pie, whatever you call it, they’ll know what you’re talking about. And if you’ve had it, you’ve talked about it! A must-have for Nashville’s annual Iroquois Steeplechase horse race, this delightful pie can also be enjoyed year-round. Featuring pecans, Ghirardelli chocolate chips and a splash of bourbon, this fun and exciting pie is definitely highly sought after.
3Chess (“Jus”) Pie
Maybe you’re sensing a trend. The most sought-after pies at Papa C Pies are all steeped in Southern tradition. And this one is no exception. While the origins of the filling, the name and the tale surrounding its genesis are widely varied, one thing remains unchanged: this pie is fantastic! Almost difficult to describe what it tastes like (it’s “jus”… pie!), this Southern staple is silky, creamy and rich with butter, sugar and egg – with just a pinch of cornmeal for texture and a splash of vinegar for balance. You may have a hard time defining this custard-like pie, but you won’t have a hard time eating it.
4Mixed Berry Pie
Is there anything better than a blueberry pie? Wait, I mean a blackberry pie. Oh, strawberries are my favorite! Shoot, I forgot about raspberries. What’s a pie-lover to do? Simple. Reach for a 4-in-1 mixed berry pie! Featuring the sweet, tart, tangy and juicy pie fruits you love best, this pie is a fruit party in your mouth. And best of all, it has not one but two of Papa C Pies’ famous light and flaky crusts!
