Old Fashion Lemon Icebox Pie

If I’m going to enjoy a piece of pie, you’ll find me at one of the long standing dessert restauants in Houston…Hose of Pies on Kirby Ave.

I’ve been going to the original House of Pies since the early 80’s when I was a big concert goer. tickets were $15.65 a piece! To see Journey, Frampton, David Lee Roth fronting for Van Halen…the list goes on.

House of Pies was THE place to go after a night of loud music.

After leaving Paulie’s in Montrose and doing a little bit of antiquing, I was hungry for some dessert and coffee. How do you enjoy this experience? You sit at the counter, not in a booth!

Today I enjoyed my all time favorite pie…a lemon icebox pie. A REAL icebox pie! Very creamy, not overly tangy, soft whipped cream and a graham cracker crust. Oh and a hot cup of coffee! I could have eaten the whole pie!

So if you are ever in Houston, make a stop at the original House of Pies.

…and sit at the counter!
