Where’s the Pie?

List of different pies availableAre you a cake person or a pie person? That’s kind of like asking if you’re a dog person or a cat person, right? Personally, I prefer pie, and dogs, although a moist slab of chocolate or carrot cake can definitely hit the spot! Pecan pie is one of my all time favorites, an absolute must at Thanksgiving or Christmas, while a warm slice of apple with a dollop of cream or Blue Bell vanilla really hits the spot on a winter day.

I work in downtown Brenham, so finding a slice of pie on an afternoon break isn’t hard. Whether an easy stroll one block away or a 5-minute drive in the car, I can be eating pie in 10 minutes flat! And even better, when I’m exploring the rolling hills of Washington County, pie is there to greet me with a smile.

So let’s get to it – where’s the pie?
