Saturday Sweetness: Pie

A couple of weekends ago, my family and I met friends in Fremont to check out Pie. Not surprisingly, it is a place that sells nothing but pies. I liked it so much, I went back later with my mom. It’s a small place, with not much seating, but the pies are worth the claustrophobia. (They are also worth the less than stellar restroom situation. It was difficult to change my baby's diaper in the tiny, out of the way restroom that was available.)

On my first trip, I had the Mac and Cheese Pie and my husband had the Cherry, Apple and Lemon Custard pies. I expected the Mac and Cheese Pie to be Kraft cheesy, but it was much more subtle and very yummy. My husband liked the Cherry best out of the pies he tried.

On my next trip, my mom and I both had the Chicken Pot Pie. I will admit, Chicken Pot Pie is one of my favorite meals, and I make it often at home. While I wouldn’t drive all the way to Fremont for something I can make myself, I thoroughly enjoyed their version, since I was in the neighborhood anyways. My absolute favorite, though, was their Chocolate Cream Pie, which I brought home from my second trip. I definitely should have enjoyed it immediately, since the crust wasn’t as good as the other pies I tried, but the filling was utterly scrumptious. I can’t wait to go back and try more pies!
