    Pecan Pie

    What a coincidence. I had made two pecan pies for a Fathers Day fish fry which was canceled at the last minute due to illness so I froze one and ate one 🙂 We decided to have the fish fry today so I am thawing the pie.

    Wish I could travel around this summer and stay with the Amish. I envy you. Have a safe and fun trip.

    Could you post some more large scale photos, like what the whole of the bakery and fabric shop looked like? Assuming that the owners are ok with that, of course….We have a new Amish settlement in my area and I’ve finally gotten to visit some of the businesses, so I’d love to see some others.

    Both the pie and the cookies look awesome. Maybe later we can see pictures of the store inside too.

    I would gladly pay that price for Monster Cookies because it seems cheap to me. It’s been a while since I baked a monster-size batch of those.

    Erik, you mentioned visiting Allen County, IN. In some Amish areas, we read that the signs say “no photos please.” In Allen County/Grabill, IN, someone requested merely “that you not ask the Amish to pose for pictures due to their beliefs.”

    Back in February, leaders in Grabill, IN were discussing about making Grabill a “Shipshewana-type” tourist attraction. They would like to increase tourism. http://www.wane.com/dpp/news/local/Hotel-restaurant-complex-planned-for-Grabill

    The pie and cookies look totally delicious…..too far away to drive tho…..

    I did pick up some goodies at an Amish Bakery across the road from JR’S GENERAL STORE about 5 miles south of Bainbridge off U.S. 50….and I was so disappointed with all but one item…..

    I purchased a cinnamon roll which was so dry I could not eat it….an apple fritter that was not any good either, a morning glory muffin that was not even close to being called a morning glory muffin…..had way too much carrot in it, and a fried peach pie which the pie was ok, I did eat all of it, but the rest I did not eat….the name of the bakery was the Country Crust….so you may want to think twice before you buy these items there…..they may have different Amish baking for them…..so I will not be buying these items anymore there….

    So if you are planning on going there….. maybe try a sample first…..just sayin………………..last summer I purchased a BLACK WALNUT PIE there and it was really good…..so I’m thinking they may have other people baking for them……

    Who can bake and sell a pecan pie for $7? They must have their own nut trees! And the price on the monster cookies is incredible. The urban bakery where I work sells cookies for $2.25 EACH.

      Comment on The going price (July 5th, 2013 at 10:53)

      The going price

      On Wednesday I was looking at Pecan pies while shopping for supplies for the 4th of July and the going price in my area is $7.0 for the 9 inch size. The “premium” deeper dish, in the 11 to 12″ sizes ran from $10.0 to $12.0. Made me think that they must price them at a dollar an inch in diameter!

      Prices seemed typical to me. Then again pecan trees are very plentiful where I live and last year was a bumper crop.

      BTW: It was the calories that stopped me, not the price of the pie. That is why I was only “looking” at them, not “buying” them.

    Great Looking Pie and Cookies

    I too would like to have seen pictures of the Country Lane Bakery. No Amish photos, just the bakery. Enjoyed your photos. And Erik, I always enjoy your stories of your travels. Thank You and have a safe trip.

      In Nappanee today

      I was at a cookout so did not get to the races though I arrived in Topeka in time to see some fireworks. Also, a fire in a house on main st at the same time fireworks were happening. So, there was a lot going on. Right now I am somewhere in Nappanee settlement on an Amish business tour with a friend, posting this using my kindle. There are some big Amish companies here providing an alternative to factory work. The RV factories by the way were described to me as “booming”again.

    M-m-m-m-m! Pie...!

    I agree with Magdalena—the price of nuts (especially pecans) being what it is today, they must have a very cheap source to price pecan pie that low!

    Oh, those cookies look good (sorry for the drool…)!

    I enjoy your photos, Erik…it’s always fun to get an idea of what you’re experiencing on your “road trips” amongst the Amish.

      Marcus, just saw this comment. We talked about you with your cousin’s son, that was a neat coincidence. He asked if I knew a Marcus Yoder and of course it rang a bell even though we’ve never met in person. It sounds like you’ll be seeing him in Ohio 🙂

        It’s in Pa. We are leaving this morning, stopping in Somerset county, and visiting graves of ancestors. Then on to Lancaster county for the reunion. Friday we want to check what is in Lancaster county. If anybody has any ideas let me know.

    You forgot to mention, Erik, that you were also in Belle Center, Ohio. Stayed the night at Mark’s. And had lunch with Mark and I. Fritzi was quite put out that you didn’t come to visit him, as well. He thinks everybody should.

    My favorite bakery in Adams county

    There is a bakery north of berne on us highway 27 next to D.L. Schwartz blacksmith shop. They sell some fantastic fruit pies loaded with fruit, not just perma flow. Not only are the pies delicious, they are also very fancy with braided crust borders and incised decorations on top.
