Mr. Tod's Pie Factory: Sweet Potato Pie

jerzeegyrl | Mar 16, 200801:43 PM    

Three days before Thanksgiving '07, I went to Mr. Tod's Pie Factory in Somerset, NJ. www.whybake.com. The place was packed with customers. I heard people line up outside to pick up holiday pie orders the day before Thanksgiving. Their specialty is Sweet Potato Pie which my hubby said was the best he tasted. We've been back a few times since November and the pies seem to be consistently good. They also make a good Pecan Pie. I had the apple pie; but wasn't crazy about the spices. The crust is a butter crust, so it's not flaky and thick. There was copious apples in the apple pie but the thin crust did not support such a densely filled pie. Anyway, this small bakery seems to be very popular. I found it's best to call and order your pie or call to see if they have the pie you want. If you go around holiday times, order early and pick up early--otherwise you'll wait in a long line.

They also have cheesecake and fruit cobblers.

Happy eating !!!
