9 different kinds of pie with the option of crumb topping or pastry. I prefer the later, but really, I’d suffer through any of ’em. I once discovered a fried pie shop in southwest Virginia. That was mighty fine as well.
There is nothing I like better than a homemade fruit pie! You can keep your pecan pies and your chocolate pies, I want raspberry or blackberry or rhubarb or peach or strawberry or apple or cherry (the exception to this rule is blueberry which I’m not real excited about, unless they are made with wild blueberries from Maine).
On Tuesday I was visiting the new art center at the old Lorton Prison and stopped in the sleepy town of Occoquan on my way home. The town had little to offer except for the best pie shop I’ve been to in a very long time, Mom’s Apple Pie Bakery! I could have bought one of each, but restricted myself to four. Their blackberry pie is rated #1 in the South by Southern Living magazine. What a treasure…I’m heading to D.C. tonight for an opening and I just might have to stop in again…
