New Mexico Magazine
Who would think that the nation's favorite dessert would be thriving at the top of the Continental Divide, some 80 miles down U.S. 60 from the nearest city (Socorro)? Indeed, pies at the Pie-O-Neer are so delicious they’ve received acclaim from such publications as Travel + Leisure and Sunset. When making her renowned chocolate cream pie, chef-owner Kathy Knapp focuses on quality basics. For the crust, she combines equal portions of butter and lard. "The butter adds flavor, while the lard makes it flaky," she says. Knapp uses her grandmother's old-fashioned recipe for egg custard for the filling, then adds chocolate—including half a bar of gourmet dark cacao—until she "likes the way it looks." To finish, she adds a "chunk of butter to make it glisten." You'll feast on this delicacy in an old trading post that borders "PieWay 60," its authentic barn-wood walls covered in historic relics.

From the author: "PIE TOWN is a story that seems to bring together all of my styles of writing. There's a mystery, an unexpected friendship, a call for community, and a bit of mysticism. There is also a real sense of "place" in this story as New Mexico is a captivating and "enchanted" land. I look forward to this publication and will have more information as we get closer to the release date."
This novel includes the Pie-O-Neer's pecan pie recipe and, as you may suspect, a story that will sound familiar to anyone who knows Pie Town well.
