Here is a delicious recipe inspired by our roadtrip through Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Jack was enthusiastic about stopping by Dollywood along the way. It is a beautiful area.
When you’ve been working 9 to 5, you need a treat that will lift your spirits. Dolly Parton Pie is the world-famous singer’s favorite, a walnut pie with a rich, sweet filling you can enjoy whenever you get the Mule Skinner Blues!
Buttery, crunchy, and melodic, Dolly Parton Pie is just what you need most when it’s time to tuck into dessert. You’ll fall in love with it on the first bite!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a 9-inch pie pan with the unrolled crust, cutting off any overhang.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs with a hand mixer.
Add the sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, and salt gradually to the beaten eggs, mixing to combine.
Add the melted butter and mix until thoroughly combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pie shell.
