Coconut Pie Quest

Last night Chef Kitty and I kicked off the Quest, a search for the Best Coconut Pie in the Hill Country.  We started with a toe-in-the-water taste at the Red Rooster in New Braunfels. And it was good, maybe even the best.

But one pie is not a Quest so today we drove north, up and back, 337 miles, 12 pies in 5 towns.  We found another best but it was German Chocolate so the Quest continues.

Tomorrow we take a more westerly loop, another dedicated drive and pie all-day effort. Wish us luck. And Pie. I'll share results with you when the sugar rush subsides.

  3. Best. Quest. Ever. . . well, maybe an even BETTER quest would be for the best cheesecake. But that's just me ;) Best of luck to you in your endeavors.

  4. I would wish you luck, but alas, I'm not a coconut pie fan. I am on a perpetual quest to find the best enchilada combo plate north of the Rio Grande, so if you see it while you're out, let me know.

    Cheers.

  5. Sounds like my kind of quest.

    The coconut pie at Wimberley Pie Co is VERY good...worth the drive up.

    Good luck. Have fun.
