Travelers on I-44 crossing Missouri can find a great place to enjoy some fine bakery goods just off Exit 184 in Rolla, a busy university town in the middle of the state. A Slice of Pie is located in a small business block close to that exit. It specializes in wonderful fruit and cream pies, cakes and cheesecakes, as well as specialty sandwiches and quiches served for lunch and supper.

The pies are sold whole or by the half or by the slice. They also offer combination “sampler” plates of four and eight slices to allow folks to taste a wide variety of flavors. They request that sampler plates be ordered in advance to insure that all the flavors will be available.

We purchased a whole cherry-raspberry pie to bring home and then individual slices of lemon and chocolate for immediate tasting in the truck. The flavors were intense, the crust flaky and delicious and the slices themselves were large enough to fill a hungry pie-eater. Slices run about $5, but are well worth the money as they fill the take-out containers to overflowing .

The ladies working the bakery will reserve a special flavor for you, if you call ahead when coming to pick up a pie or cake. Otherwise it is first come-first served and some of the more popular flavors sell out early in the day.

A Slice of Pie also prepares sandwiches and soups for lunches, both eat-in and take-out. They looked very good, but we were too busy enjoying our pie to think about other food during this visit!

Our favorite of the non-desserts was this chicken mushroom pot pie, which still tasted very fresh, even at 9:00PM. Excellent yeasty dinner rolls come with all entrees.

In 1946, when Bobby and Cynthia Troup drove their Buick convertible from the East to the West coast in hopes of finding a future writing songs, Cynthia suggested to Bobby that he write one about Route 40.
