I want to pick up a pie tonight from the Grand Central outpost of The Little Pie Company. The pies *look* so good but the one time I had them I was disappointed. Maybe I got the wrong ones? Steer me right, 'hounds!
I think I had the regular apple pie (not the sour cream apple walnut) and the 3-berry. They were the 5 inch ones and a gift as I was recovering in the hospital so maybe all the morphine clouded my taste buds. The crusts were too thick and chewy and while the apple filling was yummy the berry filling lacked a zing of flavor and had some hardened berries in it (yuck).
I am especially concerned as I am buying the pie tonight to serve tomorrow night. Everyone is watching their weight and it is spring so I was leaning toward the 3-Berry or the Strawberry-rhubarb and serving it with fresh strawbs and fresh whipped cream. There will be 7 of us so I think the 8 inch pie will work.
