This is the perfect accompaniment to peppermint ice cream and the perfect ending to a festive holiday meal. And as homemade pies go, it’s not even that hard to make because you use a store-bought crust. (And spare me the Sandra-Lee-hatred as I am the captain of that club: we’ll get a homemade crust recipe up soon for you diehard traditionalists.)
So put on that apron and make your Grandma proud. Nothing says “Southern” and “special” like this old-school dessert combo.
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
