Pie Season

Recently I've had a higher pie need than usual. Maybe it's because it is pie season. I've determined that pie season is semi-annual. One during the holidays, the second when the summer fruits ripen. Right?

In my great quest for pie I came across the sweetest little shop ever. Well, it’s not so little, but it is sweet. They offer cookies and cupcakes and cakes and pie! This place is called Sweet Mandy B’s and it is delicious. I ordered apple blueberry and key lime pie. That’s right! Key lime in November! I obviously couldn’t pass that up. The crust was perfect. It was just the right amount of crumbly to be picked up by the not too sweet creamy key lime filling. I’m salivating in the refreshing memory of it.

The apple blueberry pie was equally amazing. I took one bite, and experienced so many wonderful complementary flavors. I tried to figure out what spices they used, but I couldn’t. No one spice stood out. It was a delightful medley, composed to make one delightful pie. The bottom crust was the right density to support the heavy fruit, and the top crust was full of nooks and crannies, offering the juices handy little places to hide. How my mouth rejoiced when those hiding places were discovered! 

Happy pie season!
