Clueless about fudge

Try the often overlooked and under rated candy counter at Breed and Company on 29th street just west of Guadalupe.

Who makes the best coconut cream pie in town?

i bet if you were to call back lambert's and ask to speak to a chef or manager or emailed telling them of your situation and how you and your husband love this pie, the pastry chef/baker would be more than happy to accommodate you. my guess is you probably had someone on the phone who did not know better or did not feel like taking the time to find out if it would be possible. i guarantee all the products to make that pie are in the kitchen and it really would be as simple as making a small batch of a different filling for the pie shells that they are already baking! just a thought, seeing as it is your favorite.
