I adore a good piece of pie. The flaky crust, the yummy filling….I am drooling. I prefer a fruit filling, but am not one to turn down a cream, pumpkin or pecan pie.
When doing some research a few months ago about all the places (mostly food related) that I wanted to visit in Seattle when we moved out West, I stumbled on High 5 Pie.
I knew that it would have to be one of the first places I check out. So last week when I was in desperate need for a break from these crazy boys, I tweeted that I was heading to Seattle for some pie, and did anyone want to join me. I was super excited when a new (and awesome) friend said that she would be in the city and would love to join me. Yippee! Pie and conversation….yes, please.
Libby and I decided to share a couple of slices so that we could, without huge guilt, try two slices out of their incredible looking selection.
and Maple Blueberry
I have to say that I can’t decide which I enjoyed more….they are both delicious and so different from each other. I had never heard of lemon shaker….but it is a candied lemon peel filling. Tart, tangy and just a little sweet. Perfection. Loved that the Maple Blueberry was a one crust pie with a crumble topping…it was so great. Had those tiny blueberries that just burst with juice when you bite them. It was so good that is what I chose to bring home to Jason.
So, if you are ever in Seattle, and want to go for some pie….this is the place. And call me, I’ll join you for a slice!
