The Nashville Collection
How y’all doin’? Before everyone went gaga with salted caramel desserts, there was the Southern Peanut Pie. Some say it's a poor man's version of pecan pie. Others say it was the salty-sweet punch inspired by the flavor thrill of a now-vanishing gas station treat created by pouring a packet of salted peanuts into a bottle of ice-cold Coke. Either way, we say it's a crackerjack of a pie. This swoon-worthy peanut pie is topped with a tender natural peanut-brittle-like veneer. Cowboy Peanut Pie is at its at its best made with roasted Virginia peanuts... kind of ironic for a Nashville favorite, right?
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 55 minutes
Yield: 8 servings
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs

2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons real maple syrup
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

ChefSecret: Allow the pie to cool completely before cutting to prevent the center from running.
