Shelley Young Recipe

Dixie Pie-Tippins Restaurant Style

By Shelley Young shellekc

When Tippins Restaurant went out of business I was so sad at the thought of never having this pie again. It was just the best place to go for a late night coffee and pie "decompress" with a girlfriend. Then Hen House markets secured all of Tippins old pie recipes and started selling them in their stores. It still wasn't the same for me. I want to sit down with warm, fresh made pie and coffee and chat my bestie up for an hour. Now I can. So can you! Enjoy this pie warm with or without vanilla bean ice cream and a steamy cup of great coffee...and a friend.

    This was very easy, turned out beautiful to the eye and absolutely delicious. I love to cook but generally leave the baking to my lovely and talented wife. This looked so good and so do-able that I tackled it this afternoon. Thanks for sharing, Shelley! I wish I had been privileged to enjoy the wares of Tippins if this is representative of the experience.
