What Could Be More Southern?

Peaches, Pecans & Peanuts....can you think of anything more indicative of the South?  Well, maybe fried chicken.  But we're still talking pies here.  Everyone's had pecan pie, but how many have smacked their lips to peanut pie?  Haven't?  Well, make this one up and begin smacking away!



1 (9 in) unbaked pie shell
1 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts
1/4 cup whole salted peanuts


Combine corn syrup, brown sugar, eggs, butter and vanilla in large bowl.  Beat at medium speed, scraping often, until well-mixed.  Stir in 3/4 cup chopped peanuts.  Pour into prepared crust.  Sprinkle top with 1/4 cup whole peanuts.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until top of pie feels dry.  (If browning too quickly. cover edge with 2 inch strip of aluminum foil.)  Cool completely.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Just before serving, garnish with whipped cream and chopped peanuts if desired.

  1. Look at you, Mom! How tricky are you that you have been posting recipes when I wasn't looking. :) So, I guess that means Thomas has been sleeping for you while you have been babysitting him. This was a really yummy pie. Really rich pace yourself.
