We thought pie season was over, what with the holidays behind us and all. We were wrong! Today, January 23, is National Pie Day, and March 14, is, of course, Pi(e) Day. Plus, Tenacious Eats just did a whole movie-dinner built around pies last week. What more reason do you need?
Pie Oh My (2719 Sutton Boulevard, Maplewood; 314-704-4416)
This one's a no-brainer. Owner Jane Callahan is basically the fairy godmother of pie. She started delivering her home-cooked masterpieces door-to-door before setting up shop in Maplewood. It's fresh ingredients, seasonal flavors and local collaborations that keep things exciting. This week, Callahan's got apple, blackberry custard, butterscotch cream (Thursday only), coconut cream (Friday), lemon meringue, oatmeal chocolate, pear apple, and pecan.
