Olive Branch "Pie-Lady" seeking national recognition

OLIVE BRANCH, MS (WMC-TV) - She is known to those in Olive Branch as "The Pie Lady." She claims her chocolate pie is not just the best in America- it is the best in the world.

Audrey Anderson, the owner of the Pie Folks pie shop in Olive Branch , says without hesitation her 'Slap Yo Mama' pie is absolutely the best you will ever wrap your lips around.

Anderson said it took a bit of experimenting at first.

"One reason or another, I put one of them into the refrigerator and it had to set up. Once it set up, I cut into it, the next day and wal-lah, it was the perfect chocolate pie," she said.

Recently, Anderson received national attention from ABC's Good Morning America, which is searching for the best pie in the country through an on-line poll.

Olive Branch Pastor Jimmy Stewart submitted the required essay, which was selected. He is a very big fan.

"You'll come to Olive Branch and see Audrey at the Pie Folks, order Slap yo Mama chocolate pie and tell them Jimmy Stewart sent you," he said.

Judging from the all the happy faces from both old and young, the pie is a big hit, and Audrey has big plans.

"It's the best pie in America. Hopefully I'll be able to ship all over. Start somewhere, and maybe it can become an international pie," Anderson said.
