Arkansas's most-definitive pie, this layered dessert includes a sandy-bottom crust (flour, butter and pecans), cream cheese, chocolate custard and whipped cream with pecan bits on top. The pie gets its name from the term "playin' possum," or pretending to be something you're not. In this case, the chocolate layer is what's hidden until the pie is sliced. Stoby's of Russellville makes the standard-bearing version known around the state; you can pick up a whole one to take home from its partner bakery, PattiCakes, in Conway.
