Thursday’s Side Dish: Unusual Pies

Weird pies stuffed with more than just fruits

Perhaps you’ve had a slice of Mississippi Mud Pie or Shoofly Pie? Don’t be misled by their giddy nicknames since each of them contains only sweet ingredients, such as chocolate and molasses. However, here are “more unusual” pies that you may wanna sample:

Funeral Pie -- an Amish tradition that’s really a baked raisin pie that’s served at funerals. Raisins have a long-shelf life, which means they’re available year-around.

Onion Pie – take loads of thinly sliced onion, garlic, herbs, grated parmesan cheese, and sliced tomatoes then bake them in a pie to make this hefty side dish by the slice.

Vinegar Pie – one of the easiest and simplest pies (a Southern favorite) any cook can prepare and serve. The use of apple-cider vinegar and sugar creates a combo of flavors that are not unpleasant, but daring.
