Southern Brown Sugar is one of the most delicious pie recipes you've never heard of. Made with only five ingredients, this pie is incredibly easy to make. The gooey sweet filling is similar to the base of a pecan pie, but without the nuts. To make this easy Southern recipe, whisk the eggs and add in the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla. Then, pour this sweet mixture into a pie crust and bake in the oven. That's it! This pie is insanely simple to make, but tastes like it took hours to create. It is made with common ingredients you probably have in your pantry. This pie will become one of your favorite Southern dessert recipes, especially when paired with butter pecan ice cream.

Chess pie is just too sweet for me. I feel like I'm taking a big bite of plain brown sugar.
