The secret to this rich pie is cooking the sugar and corn syrup first. It is definitely not diet food! I bake this pie for 45 minutes according to my oven but you may need to bake longer.

Recipe #101954

I found this peach cobbler recipe on the internet from the Salt Lick Restaurant in Austin, TX. Everyone loves this recipe so much I have to make a double batch! Feel free to cut back on the sugar. Everyone has and the peach cobbler still comes out perfect. :D Personally, I always use two bags of frozen peaches instead of canned.

Recipe #31901

This is an old southern favorite. From Miss Daisy's Tea Room, Nashville, TN

Recipe #48206

Same flavor, but not the ooey-gooeyness. Uses brown sugar instead of karo syrup. I checked Zaar and couldn't find the same recipe. The USA southeast area has used this recipe for years. It is a Blue Ribbon WINNER! I would not go back to the syrup recipe. This makes 2 pies using a regular size pie shell and freezes well if you want to freeze one. Butter is best, but you can use margarine. (It is important to use the cornmeal in this recipe.) I prefer my pecans in broken pieces because the slices will cut better. Easy to make and easy to travel to a potluck. You'll be glad you tried this delightful pie!!

Recipe #252760

No trip to New Orleans is complete without stopping in at Cafe Du Monde for their spectacular beignets and cafe au lait. Here is a home version—when frying, make sure to maintain the heat at exactly 325° and do not crowd them in the frying vessel, or they will be greasy and soggy. The Glory of Southern Cooking.

Recipe #341667

A Creole cake, also known as gateau au sirop. Recommended to use Steen’s pure cane syrup, made the traditional way in Abbeville, Louisiana since 1911. Recipe from Southern Cakes, Nancie McDermott. Cake:

A Love Affair with Southern Cooking

Recipe #384922

This is my Mom's famous Chess Pie. It was always one of the first to sell out at the Church bake sales. Rich and creamy and easy as can be. A dieter's nightmare - but quite the tasty treat.

Its Derby Time! This Pie May be better than the Derby!

Recipe #25750

This is a gooey and chocolaty dream. It's very moist. It's a great dessert for potlucks, dinner parties, etc. Make sure you get a piece though because it will disappear quickly! I got the recipe from the Southern Living 30 Years of our best cooking book. It's a great cook book!

Recipe #67117

Southern Living; I make these every Christmas and they bring down the house everytime.

Buttery and moist cake with a nice butter sauce.

Recipe #24274

Southern decadence at it finest! These are enough to make a New Orleans native like me homesick. Cook time includes cooling time. Recipe from (but its almost as good as MawMaw's recipe)

Recipe #45753

I adopted this recipe during the Recipezaar abandoned account recipe adoption. This is a delicious pie with an easy, no fuss crust. The crust is tender and flaky at the same time and the flavor is just the perfect amount of sweetness! Try it and you'll see why it is a Festival winning apple pie! 10/12/04, Edited: cooking time/temperature

Recipe #8424

My next door neighbor Steve is a pretty darn good cook IMO, and he has given me permission to post and share another one of his favorites he made last night. I told him his other one got a 5 and I'll bet this one does too. Try'll love it.

Recipe #43115

From Southern Living. My mom wants to try this one out for Mardi Gras. The King Cake tradition came to New Orleans with the French settlers around 1870, continuing a custom dating back to twelfth century France. Similar cakes were used then to honor the three wise men who visited the Christ child, calling it the feast of Epiphany, Twelfth Night, or King's Day. The traditional colored sugars used to decorate the cake are purple (justice), green (faith), and gold (power). You are supposed to tuck a little plastic baby in the cake and whoever gets the piece with the baby has to host next year's party. We don't do that because with my luck, someone would choke and aspirate the little baby.

Recipe #201857

Mother's recipe for my Dad's favorite pie! It's a lemon lover's dream. I often make these for Holiday gifts or potluck suppers.

Published in the local paper, this is a recipe from the Rather Sweet Bakery in the Texas hill country. Better than Hostess Pies! :o) If you prefer to bake your pies instead of frying them, directions are at the bottom.

Recipe #93493

This is so great. My family can hardly wait for it to come out of the oven. Nothing like it.
