Kat Robinson, food blogger and author of several books on Arkie eateries, has used her encyclopedic knowledge of where to find good homemade pie in Arkansas to publish a second book on the subject, “Another Slice of Arkansas Pie.” The book will be available at WordsWorth Books in the Heights and Honey Pies bakery in West Little Rock, or you can order it online from Amazon and other book distributors for a mid-April delivery.

The book, subtitled “A Guide to the Best Restaurants, Bakeries, Truck Stops and Food Trucks for Delectable Bites in the Natural State,” features 400 places to procure pie, with tales of the pastry chefs and other stories.

Some will want to buy the book for the 33 recipes it includes from all regions of Arkansas, such as the Bradley County Pink Tomato Pie, Greenhouse Grille’s Bourbon Chocolate Chunk Pecan Pie Recipe (the Fayetteville restaurant has closed, but you can make the pie), the Oark Country Store’s Oatmeal Pie, the Williams Tavern Restaurant Cushaw Pie and Robinson’s own Brown Sugar Pecan Pie. There cannot be enough recipes for pecan pie, in my opinion.

Warning: The pie pictures and write-ups will make you throw your diet to the wind and head to the nearest pie shop, the directions to which you’ll find in this book.
