Pie Town

We've been on a short driving trip through western New Mexico and eastern Arizona, so I haven't blogged much lately. However, for those of you who like pie (and isn't that everybody?), I can heartily recommend a tiny whistle stop, Pie Town, New Mexico. The town, which has a population of 55, was named for the pies made by one of the original settlers. When the post office came to town, they wanted to name the place after the settler, but he wisely insisted that it be named Pie Town, or the post office could take their letters and go home. Seriously though, the pies were great. We each had a slice, blackberry and cherry, topped with a big scoop of vanilla and a great cup of coffee, chatting with a trucker from St. Johns, AZ. The cafe's web site has a recipe for their specialty, a Mexican Apple pie. A little slice of heaven.
