Top 10 Places For Pecan Pie In Texas

via The Culture Trip, December 15, 2015

On the go and craving a slice of pecan pie? You’re in luck. Grab a mini pecan pie at Austin’s beloved bakery Tiny Pies.

The mother-daughter team at Tiny Pies has been baking together for decades, and it shows in the hand-held sweet and savory pies. If you don’t think it’s too sacrilegious, try the Texas two-step, a brownie pecan pie.

As they look at the desserts, the women naturally start talking about pies.

Five years ago, they might have discussed them as a mother and daughter who enjoyed baking at home. Now, as co-founders and owners of Tiny Pies, they tend to talk business: marketing, expansion, personnel, finances. Having established themselves online, in high-end Texas food stores, in their own retail space and in catering, they plan to open another store in Houston later this year. Their small endeavor is growing mighty big.

Amanda has always wanted to create something of her own. She had been a stay-at-home mom to her two boys, then a divorced mom at 40, trying her hand…
