As Southerners, pie is in our blood. We like them filled with pecans, topped high with meringue, chilled in the icebox, and every variation thereof. Here are some places you must try around the South.
New Albany, Mississippi
New Albany is one of those little Mississippi towns that you’ll miss if you blink, and you don’t want to miss Sugaree’s Bakery. Classic Southern cakes are what brought Sugaree’s into the spotlight, but the pies here are not to be missed. Pecan and chess pies are available every day, but the famous five-pound (yes, really!) chocolate meringue pie is available only on Fridays, so plan accordingly.
