Savory and sweet, the Brazos Bottom Pecan Pie from Goode Co. comes fresh in a pine box all the way from Texas -- the box is well-branded with its point of origin in case your recipients have any doubts. But the fine presentation is more than matched by the pie's flavor, as the rapidity by which one disappeared from our office kitchen made very clear. Made with farm eggs and organic Texas pecans, the 9-inch pies will keep for three weeks at room temperature in its box. The company, which has eight restaurants in Texas, focusing on a variety of cuisines including barbecue and seafood, also offers spices, rubs and sauces, and pecan pralines.
