Backroads Bakery - Review with Giveaway

Monday, February 15, 2010 Posted by Rita A


Hello all my sweet tooth readers. Have I got a treat to share with you today. Fried Pies. Not just any fried pies. These gems are Fried Pies from Backroads Bakery. Backroads Bakery Fried Pies come from Gordon, TX and can be found locally at many locations. I can not believe Texas was keeping these scrumptious treats a secret from the rest of us.

About Backroads Bakery:
Down twists and turns and a gravel road, in the middle of what could be considered a field, sits the dream that was born in one woman’s kitchen.The recipe started with Sarah Lively. She tried recipe after recipe to find the perfect dough for her pies. She began selling her pies to hotels and stores in the area. Her requests became so demanding she took on partners to expand the bakery operation and was selling in over 80 stores in a 125 mile radius of her home location. In 2004 it became officially Backroads Bakery. They were making 4000 pies per week. The demand was still increasing. In 2009 they approached Carol and Bill. With over 20 years in the restaurant business, Carol and Bill have brought their expertise and family into the Backroads Bakery operation. The growth is amazing and they have increased production to over 6000 pies per week.



I had the pleasure of sampling these delectable Backroads Bakery Fried Pies. I inhaled tasted the different flavors of Cherry, Apricot, Buttermilk, Chocolate, and Apple. The taste is incredible. The crust is sweet and thick. It has a fabulous cookie type of texture is the best way I can describe it. The sweetness of the crust is excellent by itself then you get to the scrumptious fillings. Tucked inside each pie, you bite into the decadent fillings balancing out nicely with the sweetness of the crust. The Apricot was my absolute favorite flavor. It tasted like a fresh apricot right off the tree. I devoured enjoyed each flavor and shared some with my family. They loved the flavors. They tried the chocolate and the apricot. The opinions were mixed as some thought they were great while others wanted more filling. I felt they were just right. It has a melt in your mouth flavor to me. I was doing the "oh these are so good eye roll" as I took my first bites. I wish I lived in the area to get these on a regular basis. They are so tasty. They are adding new flavors in the near future. I can't wait to see what they add. Maybe the Chocolate as a permanent flavor, or Lemon. Yum.

Now you can order Backroads Bakery Fried Pies online to ship to your location. You can mix and match the flavors to create your perfect dozen. The pies have a shelf life of 10 days and they ship them freshly made to you. Pies are shipped on the Monday after the order is received. For 12 scrumptious Fried Pies the price is $24.00 and you pay by Paypal. They are so good one dozen may not be enough.
