Serious Eats: Recipes
In Pamela Goyan Kittler and Kathryn P. Sucher's book Food and Culture, they describe North Carolinan sonkers as "a deep-dish fruit or sweet potato pie made with breadcrumbs or biscuit dough or pie crust—there is no agreement on how to prepare it."
This version is made with biscuit dough and a lattice crust. One thing's for sure, Sonkers are meant for a crowd, so butter up a big pan and get baking!
