7 Best Shops for Apple Pie in New Mexico!

Apple pie. It doesn’t get any more classic in the world of desserts. From cozy cafés in Pie Town (yes, a real town in New Mexico!) to bakeries in Ruidoso, New Mexico’s pie shops will set you up with that perfectly sweet, tart, and crispy-crusted apple pie. Here are the 7 best in the state. 

Cornerstone Bakery and Cafe, Ruidoso, NM

It’s as easy as pie to eat more than one slice of the apple pie made fresh daily here. The crust is flaky and buttery, the apples are dusted with a hint of cinnamon and it comes out of the oven a beautiful golden brown. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and sit awhile—the aroma emanating from the kitchen is intoxicating.

Passion Pie Cafe, Truth or Consequences, NM

If you love pie, and who doesn’t, try the mini apple pie—more than a slice but less than a whole pie. The perfect size. The pastry cases are a delight for the eyes and the smells wafting through this small bakery make your mouth water. All pastries are baked fresh every day and fly out of the cases. Get off the highway for this delicious pit stop.

Burro Street Bakery, Cloudcroft, NM

A bright red sign identifies this rustic bakery as “Home of the Famous Mountain Top Pies.” It’s an apt description. The town, and bakery, sits at 8,600 feet in the Sacramento Mountains. A visit is well-worth the trek. The homemade caramel apple walnut pie is a tasty trifecta of flavors.

The Pink Adobe, Santa Fe, NM

This landmark local restaurant has been serving diners since 1944 in a 400-year-old adobe. Sadly, it’s no longer in the pink, but the food, however, is, especially the French apple pie. It’s a longstanding family recipe that blends the best apples of the harvest with a warm, caramelized sauce and a dollop of ice cream that’s sizzling when served. It’s a hot and cold explosion of goodness.

Glenn’s Bakery, Gallup, NM

For more than 30 years, this family-owned bakery has been cooking up sweet treats for locals and tourists traveling the Mother Road. The homemade apple pie, a highlight, is made fresh every day. Pie is sold whole, not by the slice so it’s a perfect opportunity to share. Get there early and beat the rush, they sell out.

Old Apple Barn, High Rolls, NM

This old historic apple barn is, as you might guess, famous for its baked apple streusel crumble pie, made just the way your grandmother might have. The apples in each pie are perfectly ripe, crisp and tart. The streusel topping is a buttery, crumbly mix that takes a simple apple pie to new taste heights. The pie, and the place, is an unforgettable experience.

Blue House Bakery & Cafe, Carlsbad, NM

What better place to have a piece of pie then at a quaint, blue house that reminds you of home. It’s only open at breakfast time, but eating pie for breakfast is as American as, well, the apple nut pie served here. Sit outside, enjoy this sweet treat before the day unfolds.
