...delicious!

Hi! I ate a piece of your wonderful derby pie on the KY Dinner Train in October. This was the first time I had tried it. It was the best part of the night! I love desserts and your derby pie was delicious! A friend of mine just had to go to Bardstown for a seminar and I had her stop by the gift shop at the train to pick me up a whole pie. I saw your web site info on the box and I just wanted to let you know what I thought! I will be ordering from you soon. Keep up the terrific baking!"
