Milo's Famous Sweet Tea Pie Recipe Is a Sweet Slice of the South

Sweet tea is a staple in the south. If you have visions of families sitting on porch swings sippin' on a glasses of sweet tea, you're not far off. But now we not only sip our sweet tea but eat it, too. This famous sweet tea pie recipe is the perfect example of getting sweet tea out of the glass and onto a fork.

This sweet tea pie is wonderful eaten after dinner with a cup of coffee. To make this southern pie recipe you will need sweet tea, granulated sugar, flour, cornmeal, salt, eggs, butter, lemons for juicing and zesting, powdered sugar and a ready made pie crust.

This dessert recipe uses Milo's sweet tea. "Milo’s was founded as a restaurant in 1946 by Milo and Bea Carlton after Milo returned from serving our country in World War II. Milo’s philosophy was simple: use high quality, natural ingredients, listen to your customers, and never sacrifice taste. More than 75 years later, Milo’s is still a family-owned business and also a Certified Women Owned Business with corporate headquarters in Bessemer, Alabama." If you can't find Milo's sweet tea in your area, use your favorite sweet tea (or make your own homemade sweet tea).

Serve this southern recipe for dessert with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Delicious!
