They really just don’t make comfort food better than they do in the South. Between fried chicken, green bean casserole, cornbread, and mac n’ cheese, I don’t think anyone can argue with me. Another wonderful thing that comes out of the South? Their desserts. And the recipe we’re about to share with you is no exception.

I definitely wouldn’t consider myself to be a pie-making expert, but it turns out that it doesn’t really matter. Simply grab a frozen piecrust shell to use as the base if you don’t feel like making your own – there’s absolutely no judgement here, folks.

This is an amazing recipe to whip up for a holiday dessert, potluck, hostess gift, or as a “just because” dessert. It’s quite simple to make, and it doesn’t require any fancy ingredients. Top with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, and I’m willing to bet you’ll believe you’ve died and gone to heaven.
