A Foothills Twist on Pie: The Sonker

Record #:
The sonker has mysterious origins, and each family's creation of it is different from others. What is this delicacy with the strange name? Most agree that it is a \"deep-dish pie, juicier than cobbler, and typically served in a rectangular baking dish.\" It is peculiar to Wilkes and Surry counties, and the sonker is celebrated in Mt. Airy with a Sonker Festival.
