“My mom's award-winning corn pie! This is such a GREAT variation on traditional corn side dishes. This recipe is ALWAYS requested, so be prepared. Don't skimp on the cracker crumbs - I go heavy on them in the recipe - and this is truly the best when you use butter-flavored crackers (Club crackers or similar) - just not the same w/ saltine-type crackers. Enjoy this! I usually always double this recipe and make two pies, 'cuz everyone takes seconds (and thirds!) This also is simple to make ahead, then just bake when you're ready - perfect for after church or when you're in a hurry!”
