Located in the Western Waterlands region, Patti’s 1880 Settlement is one of the most popular restaurants in Kentucky, beloved for its family atmosphere, over-the-top holiday decorations and hearty, homespun recipes. This delectable sawdust pie is just one of those recipes. After a devastating fire in 2018, the restaurant has reopened, so you can tuck into all of your favorite pies and other Patti's favorites once again.
