Pie Oh My

4

You know what? I don’t think I blog about dessert enough. Admittedly, ever since my bread pudding challenge, I haven’t been in a dessert-eating mood. I’m still recovering from that sugar overload from January. Smile

However, when Pie Oh My opened up in Maplewood, I knew I had to blog about it. An entire shop devoted to pie? Count me in!

The place itself is adorable.

Pie Oh My offers full sized pies, as well as five inch pies and individual (tart-sized) pies.

It was late in the afternoon when I visited, so the selection of pies had dwindled down at that point.

However, there were still enough mini pies left for me to get a good sampling!

Aren’t they just adorable? If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen this picture. Winking smile

I was excited to dig in. I started with the banana cream pie, which was delicious.

The filling was sweet, custard-y, and creamy. There were even a few slices of banana in there! I’m not a huge banana fan, but this was good.

Next up? The lemon meringue pie.

Again, I’m not a huge lemon meringue fan, but this pie won me over. I loved the meringue (is that a tricky word to spell or what!?) On top, and the filling was thick and very lemon-y!

I went with the caramel apple pie next.

I was most excited about this pie; I love apples and caramel! This pie was tasty, but I felt like the apples were in such large chunks that it was difficult to eat. The flavor of the pie, however, was good.

Finally, I tried the pecan pie.

I’m going to be honest: I’m not the biggest fan of pecan pie. Something about the filling just turns me off. It’s so…weird…and brown. How it’s made is a mystery to me, and that freaks me out.

However, one bite of this pie, and everything I ever believed about pecan pie went right out the window. This was great! It was, hands down, my favorite out of the bunch. I couldn’t believe how tasty this was.

The thing I liked the most about these pies were the size. They were so small I was able to sample just enough of each flavor.

One potential drawback: the crust-to-filling ratio. This wasn’t an issue for me; I like a lot of crust in my pies. I actually prefer the crust more than the filling! However, if you’re the opposite (as I believe most people are), this might be an issue.

Service at Pie Oh My was beyond friendly. The sweet owner was there and she answered any questions that I had about the pie. Whole pies are done on an as-ordered basis right now, so if you have a hankering for an entire pumpkin pie, you may want to call ahead.

I can’t wait to come back to this little gem and try more flavors! I’m officially addicted. Pie challenge, anyone? Winking smile

I’m kidding. Kidding! No more challenges for me for a while. Winking smile

See you next week!

    This blog shows; never stop tasting food your not a fan of, if prepared the right way you may enjoy…the beauty of food, it has many personalities to draw you in for the ultimate surprise factor whether it be good or bad.

    I find it interesting that the food you are a fan of (Carmel/Apples) was the pie you least enjoyed & you enjoyed the 3 pies made of food not so drawn too. Love reading your blog & opens my belief window to foods I don’t like, maybe I will give them a try & hopefully be happily surprised.

      Good points, Sherri! I always make it a point to try foods I’m not a big fan of for the exact reasons you mentioned. Thanks for commenting and sharing your point of view! 🙂
