Dishers, please welcome Daniel Walker to SideDish. Dan has a nifty new blog, deepinthegutof texas, and he has agreed to write a segment called “Eat This Now,” a weekly ode to one of his favorite foods or meals in Dallas. Today he makes me hungry by writing about one of my favorite desserts in town. Read it and eat.
Everyone knows that there is nothing more American than apple pie. After one taste of the brown-bag apple pie at The Place at Perry’s, I instantly felt the desire to watch a baseball game, tattoo my arm with a picture of a bald eagle, buy a Ford truck, and run for Senate. Ablaze with patriotism, I quickly realized, this is no ordinary apple pie. While the menu at The Place is chock full of exemplary items, it is this dessert that wins my heart over time and time again.
