from Blue Stove
When I inquired about this beautiful looking pie at Blue Stove, the shop girl’s eyes lit up – “That” she beamed “is a sweet potato pie, and if you’ve never had one (I hadn’t) you don’t know what you’re missing”.
She claimed it to be the bakery’s best – high praise for a place that continually churns out the city’s best pies.
I was happy to find that praise wasn’t misdirected though. It’s a taste hard to explain – like an earthier pumpkin pie with maybe just maybe the slightest hint of citrus?
It was delicious for sure – those Southerns know their stuff when it comes to comforting sweets. I am curious to make my own the next time pie baking calls. Any good recipes are welcome.
