On our weekend getaway in Glen Rose, we happened upon an antique car show in the main square surrounding the court house. The streets were closed off and lined with fabulously restored antique cars. This was perfect for us, because I could wander through the antique shops and boutiques while Jed obsessed over the cars. Every few minutes he would come in a store to see something I wanted to show him, and I would come out to do the same. Perfect. We stumbled on a little place called the Pie Peddlers, and had to stop in.
The pies are all made fresh daily, and they have a great selection. Unfortunately we felt that it was a little overpriced. The slices were $4 each. I know that is pretty standard or cheap for restaurant dessert, but you know we are super frugal. We decided to go for it since we were on vacation.
Jed ordered the coconut caramel, and was definitely the big winner of the day. It was phenomenal.
I had the key lime pie, which is my go-to dessert. It was good, but not fabulous. I’m a little bit of a key lime pie snob, apparently.
Overall, I would say that stopping in Pie Peddlers is worth it for the ambiance and great service. The same ladies who make the pies wait on the tables, and are super sweet. Skip the key lime and go straight for the coconut, chocolate, or coconut caramel.
What is your go-to dessert?
