EXTRAORDINARY:  Charlottes caramel pie

  • EXTRAORDINARY: Charlotte's caramel pie
Much has been said about the coconut pie at Charlotte's Eats and Sweets in Keo. Southern Living's named it the best coconut pie in the South. But it's not the only jewel I found on my visit there today.

The caramel pie, shown above, is one such delight. Not caramel as in what you get out of a bag at Halloween but true burnt sugar custard goodness topped with an appropriate and delightful foam of a meringue, tinged with just a brush of caramelization, a perfect little piece of awesomeness.

But then, there's the egg custard...

Yeah, the egg custard pie, a perfect blend of light and eggy, sweet and creamy, a very wonderful example of the pie and much appreciated. No, I couldn't manage eating it too, not after the Keo Klassic I managed to savor. But I did get it to-go, and consumed it with fervor at a later point.

Of course, you know me, that's not all of the story. That you'll find over at Tie Dye Travels. Enjoy.
