Cushaw pie at William's Tavern Restaurant.

Here's a south Arkansas delicacy called Cushaw Pie. It's made from a goose-necked squash that's green with white or yellow stripes. What memories that evoked! So, for you pie lovers, here's a recipe.

And if you want a slice like this, head to William's Tavern Restaurant at Historic Washington State Park near Hope.
