Simple, southern and scrumptious, this pie will be a definite hit even with people who dislike grits. It has the perfect custardy texture.—Victoria Hudson, Pickens, South Carolina

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 11, 2013

I've made this pie a few times already and my family really likes it. It's easy to make, holds up well, and has a nice taste. I add an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract because I love anything vanilla. I've served this pie topped with fresh sliced strawberries, but it's delicious all by itself, too!
