When my friends, Will and his wife Michelle asked if they could send me a Collin Street Bakery Deep Dish Pecan Pie, all the way from Texas, how could I say no? I mean, some of the best food I’ve ever eaten was in Austin, a few years ago. So having a fresh-baked pie sounded very promising.

I was also excited to host a Summer Dessert Party and serve this fresh-baked pie with Homemade No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream. This ice cream is a simple recipe, easy to make ahead and freeze, then pull out of the freezer right before serving.

Dessert and coffee party.

Also, with an old-fashioned approach, we decided to serve coffee. Decaf and regular, it was a very sweet summer dessert party, with pie and coffee.

Sort of the way my parents used to entertain.

There’s something special about they way our folks entertained. I think back then, it was just more simple.

Oh, and a simple entertaining TIP: Place ice cubes in a bowl, then scoop the ice cream so guests can easily grab a scoop to go on their pie! Easy-peasy!


On a warm summer evening, pie and ice cream and coffee … the prefect treat!

The pie arrived in tip-top shape, perfectly baked and wrapped tightly, ready for entertaining!

One of the things I learned about Collin Street Bakery is that they are one of the few kitchens in America that still bakes pies the old-fashioned way, a family-owned-and-operated bakery, specializing in the DeLuxe® Fruitcake for over 118 years. Each pie is baked fresh to order, using their traditional recipes and fresh ingredients. For example, they use local pecans, which are shelled fresh daily!

Deep Dish Pecan Pie.

We savored every bite. Seriously, this Deep Dish Pecan Pie was better than any homemade pie I’ve tasted. It arrived in a beautiful collector’s tin. You can serve it right away, refrigerate, or warm it in the oven for about 10 minutes. We loved it warm from the oven … and served with homemade vanilla ice cream. Collin Street Bakery also carries other favorites, such as Chocolate Fudge Pecan Pie and their new Fudge pie.

Storage tip.

Here’s a tip for buying and serving these delicious pies. Once they arrive in the mail, refrigerate right away and enjoy within 7 days. Or, if you’re planning a party or do a lot of entertaining like I do, why not always be ready with a fabulous dessert you can pull from the freezer!? You can freeze these pies for up to 2 months.

Other items.

Collin Street Bakery also specializes in native Texas pecan cakes, luscious cheesecakes, cookies (no preservatives added to any of their products), delicious cakes, and even coffee!

Which, by the way, did you know that they are a family owned and operated business? My friend Will is the 4th generation. I love stories like these.

Now for the delicious ice cream.  Seriously, folks, this is the easiest 3-ingredient recipe, and just think of the flavors that you can add!

I added vanilla, of course, which to me is the BEST kind of ice cream to serve on pecan pie.


Whip, mix, freeze, and serve.

Finally, back to Collin Street Bakery. All of their products are guaranteed, if for any reason you are dissatisfied with your selection. Now that is great customer service! I know, because I needed to call Will about a delivery issue and he said, Sandy, I’ll bake you a fresh pie and get it sent out to you tomorrow.

Now how’s that for a great pie service?

For your next party, take the pressure off of “having to do it all” and order a couple of pies. They are delicious!

I’m thinking about hosting a “pie party” and trying more of their pies … who wants to come?

  2. I have been ordering fruit cakes, pecan pies, and all the goodies from Collins St Bakerie for many many years, and I love everyone of those products. They arrive on time and are in good shape even though they are sent thru the APO Mail. My German neighbors and friends love anything “Pecan”. Thank you so much.

  12. I used to buy my dad a Collin Street Bakery fruit cake every holiday season. He was very picky about his fruit cake. I tried many vendors, including a local one. When I happened upon Collin Street, that was it, he was hooked for the holidays.

  13. YUM. One of my fave pies was a raspberry peach pie…so good. My girl and her fiancee aren’t huge fans of cake so they are doing a pie and ice cream bar for their reception

  14. How neat to see Collin Street Bakery featured! For years, my dad ordered their smallest sized fruitcakes as Christmas gifts. We always enjoyed them.

  15. wow–sandy. my favorite pie. bet it was yummy and fresh texas pecans are the best. I make my texas ice cream with eagle brand condensed milk also in my freezer…
