Lucky folks grow up with a baking-inclined aunt, grandmother or other caring family member to shower them with fresh-from-the-oven home-cooked goodies. For the rest of us, there's Jane Callahan. Like a fairy godmother of pie, she got her start in the baking business by assembling her from-scratch confections with love and personally delivering them to customers' doorsteps. For a dose of home-style American comfort, step into her Maplewood kitchen and let the unmistakable scent of fresh baked fruit, melted butter, nutty flour and warm spice take hold. From the flakiness of the crusts to the local walnuts, apples and more that make up the fillings, Callahan has pie-making down to an art. Sugar never overwhelms the natural flavors of the fruit, which cooks to veritable perfection layered high inside each crust. Said crust never sags under the weight and moisture of fillings. Year-round flavors from Pie Oh My include caramel apple pecan and oatmeal maple walnut with Schlafly Oatmeal Stout, while weekly summer entries could range from mixed berry to strawberry rhubarb. Expect to find them in three sizes: five-inch, tart and mini. Alternatively, special order a full-size pie or opt for a piece by the slice on the fly.
