Julian Pie
« on: December 02, 2011, 10:34:58 PM »
For all of you Julian pie lovers, we're sitting here at Anza Borrego Desert State Park, eating warm Dutch Apple Pie that we bought earlier today at the Julian Pie Co. Yum. Very nice day although a bit on the nippy side in Julian.

Ok Wendy,

It's bad enough you tease us with Anza Borrego but to bring Julian pies into the equation just isn't fair!!!!! Payback is not going to be nice!! :)

If it makes y'all feel any better, it was cloudy and breezy and really, really cold.....of course, that just made the warm apple pie taste even better  ;D

Evil...evil....woman!

For lots of years, a group of us horse gals would camp with our horses at Cuyamaca Horse Camp near Julian.  We'd make the trip into Julian for a night out, which also included bringing pies back to the campground.  Lots of fun and lots of calories.

Do you know about "Dudleys" Bakery at the intersection of #76 & #74.  They have lots of wonderful fresh baked goods and also sell Julian Pies.

Ok Marsha. You've stumped me. I know 74 goes up thru Hemet but have no idea where 74 & 76 come together ?
 
Is it ok to have apple pie for dessert :)

Opps....#78 & #76.  It's Santa Ysabel.  #78 goes off to Escondido and #76 goes into Bonsall and highway #15

Hey kiddo, apple pie is OK for breakfast, the main course, and a midnight snack.  Tim eats his apple pie with a piece of cheese on it.  Apparently, that's the German way.  Me, being a southern gal likes it piled high with cool whip (fake ice cream)!   ;D

Marsha,

Eating apple pie with sharp cheddar or Stilton cheese, is very English, as well.

Those Julian pies are the best! Yum, now I am literally drooling.........

 :( I haven't had any Julian Pie since '79 and it was on the list for this week. Maybe the end of next? ;) or, a drive from Indio!  ::)

Camp Stevens, jointly owned by the Episcopal Dioceses of Los Angles and San Diego, is 2 miles NE on CA 78. I staffed many events there and esp loved it in the summer as after 6AM in El Centro it is very uncomfortable outside.

Marie, I've been drooling ever since she brought this "pie"  topic up.

On a side note, where are you and did you get the modifications done on your coach?  If so, I (we) need some pictures!

Ah Santa Ysabel, now I know where we're at. We're going thru there today on our way to Poway. Might have to stop at Dudley's on the way for some snacks. BTW, they do sell unbaked Julian pies at the ice cream store in Borrego Springs but I don't trust our MH oven to cook a pie nicely. And the drive to Julian was fun, too.

Marsha,

We are in Tucson, getting ready to fly to Switzerland on the 17th for a 3 week visit with my daughter and family. After we get back we will get our plans in motion. Trust me I will keep you posted, with all the coming developments!

Now back to the pie......can't wait to get back to Julian for that pie and the date shakes at Dateland.

Barb - Yes, I did and it was fabulous and I'd do it again. It's not just the pie which is uber-yummy, it's also the Julian experience. And we've never had one of your apple pies to compare - maybe you could make one at the Indio rally? or Quartzsite ? No one in the Forum would turn down PIE  ;D

Bob,

You are so right about the fuel costs!! Might not even have to rent the lot since we'd probably save enough money to pay the maintenance costs. ;D

Uber-yummy? That must be from the same language as ezzy-pezzy.

I have never eaten pie in my life. Watch me turn it down.

I never heard of it but must be something absolutely delicious since you are all drooling over it.

That's ok, I'm having a bowl of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup over it.  It's pretty durn good too.

If any of you are on I 40 and come to a little town called Slaton, Texas, get off the interstate and go in town.  Not much there but the bakery is awesome.  They had pies galore and all kinds of baked goods, how they sell all that is amazing in a town of 6600.  They must come from a larger town or something.  I didn't get a pie but what we did get was delicious and there is room down town to parrallel park a motorhome with toad on the square the way its designed.

We finally got Blue Bill in NM, one of TX top products and deservedly so. The sherbet is great too.  ;)

Slayton is less than15 miles from TX Tech and Lubbock is a city that loves to eat. Add that to all those driving through from parts noth, and that includes. Red River, Taos, Santa Fe and Denver on their way to Austin and San Antone. I learned about that bakery when I used to go to meetings in Lubbock from Coleman, SE of Abilene. Word of mouth always works!  ;D

And some of the best sausages are in a small store in Snyder --I hope it's still there! :-\

It's amazing how many small towns have nothing to recommend them other than some food specialty.....Julian for pie, Bishop CA for Schat's bakery come to mind. We could start a whole new thread on others.

The Julian apple pie sounds great, but since I'm a berry pie guy, for all the berry pie lovers ..... if you are ever driving up Highway 99 in California, just about 5 miles south of Yuba City on the west side of the highway there is a place called Stephens Farmhouse. They have the best Olallieberry pies, I think, in the world. Baked fresh every day. They have other baked goods as well, but I've been known to make the hour and a half round trip drive for the berry pie... ;D ;D
