NORTH SHORE LAKE SUPERIOR: BETTY'S PIES TWO HARBORS VS THE PIE PLACE GRAND MARAIS

We stopped in at Betty's pies for our second and third trips there to have pie this past weekend. We had their blueberry and pecan pies. The blueberry is very good there. It has a very blueberry taste without being overwhelmed by having excessive sugar added to it. The fruit filling has a good texture. It feels like you are chewing blueberries. The crust is dry and crumbly with a light sprinkling of sugar. The pecan pie was good too. It was not overly sweet and had a good toasty pecan flavor. The blueberry pie that we had on our last visit this weekend was much thinner than on the other two occasions that we visited.

We had blueberry pie and a mixed fruit pie at The Pie Place in Grand Marais this past weekend too. The pie that we tried at The Pie Place had more of a "pie filling" texture and taste to it. Both flavors were overly sweet with lots of added sugar. They cook them and store them cold at The Pie Place. The blueberry pie was cold and the liquid from the filling had soaked through the crust which was soggy and tasteless to us. We had the mixed fruit pie warmed. Warming it brought out the overly sugared taste even more than the cold pie.

We much prefer Betty's Pies over The Pie Place.
