Wooooo-Hooooo!


pie

 

Look what showed up on our doorstep late this afternoon!  A Royers pie.  Yeah!

This delicious selection is the Buttermilk Delight.  Start with a flaky, very flavorful crust, of which I eat every bite.  The crust is filled with buttermilk pie filling simply concocted with butter, eggs, sugar, flour and buttermilk.  At least the buttermilk pie I make has those ingredients.  Then Bud the Pieman throws some chocolate chips, coconut and pecans into the mix before baking to perfection.   The pie is UPS’d to your door in a made-to-fit box with packaging that delivers the pie to you fresh and in one piece.

If you are racking your brain trying to figure out what to send Aunt Hilda in Ohio for the holidays, send her one of these.  You could sign her up for the pie-a-month-for-life club.  If you don’t like her that much, just send the pie-of-the-month for a year club.  Or how about sending Christmas pies to your business clients?  My company sent client Christmas gifts from Royers for several years and got many compliments from the recepients.  My co-worker and I handwrote thank you notes, shipped them up to the cafe, and had them inserted into the pie boxes so each gift had a personal touch.  

I didn’t get to participate this past Sunday (since I worked a wedding for them on Saturday), but CBS Sunday Morning was in Round Top to film a piece on Royers.  It is scheduled to air in November, probably close to Thanksgiving.  I’ll let you know when I know for sure.  So order your pies now, before the whole country finds out and Royers gets really busy.

I’ll leave you with pics of the weekend wedding I worked for Royers.

  1. paula….again thanks for all you do and all your kind, meaningful, & sincere words!

  2. We LOVED the buttermilk pie we ordered from Royer’s last year!! That one was our favorite, but the pecan pie was really, really delicious, too! It amazed me how they shipped it — not a single crumb out of place! It sort of makes you say “how in the world do they do THAT?” when you see it wrapped in the special box it comes in! Wow, now I am craving PIE!!
