Is there anything more divine than a freshly baked pie? Whether it’s a tart strawberry-rhubarb cooling on the windowsill or a rich coconut cream twirling in a display case, there’s sweet nostalgia packed into every slice. Pie is a tricky dish to get just right. Crust can be temperamental, and the fillings — fluffy meringues, saucy baked fruits, dense creams that hold their shape — require a skilled hand. Happily, there are many spots baking phenomenal pies around Minneapolis and St. Paul. Here are a few places to find slices of key lime, chocolate mousse, and strawberry blueberry crumble (or order a whole pie, if that’s your jam).
