As any pie freak will tell you, it’s all about the crust. And crust purists here in Texas agree that for sheer flakiness and tenderness, you can’t beat the pies at Royer’s cafe, in the Central Texas community of Round Top. If you want to verify this yourself, you can do one of three things: Have a slice of pie at the cafe (the drive there through rolling pastures is really pretty), order a whole pie by mail at 877-866-7437 or, or make one yourself. Here are instructions for the crust; the filling is up to you. And don’t worry—the recipe is as easy as pie.
