Emporium Pies: Where Crusts That Don't Suck Make For Damn Good Desserts

Categories: Whimsy

Mr. Macintosh
Megan Wilkes can't help herself. When talking business, every word she utters that contains a long "I" is fodder for another pie pun. She calls herself a pie-oneer for instance. She's always looking for her next great pie-dea.

Fortunately her baking skills outdo her saccharine one-liners.

A mutual friend paired Wilkes up with Mary Gauntt, a freckle-faced pixie with a warm smile and a knack for pie baking. Then the two turned to family recipes, scaffolding what would become a collection of innovative desserts and the birth of Emporium Pies.

Seeking to create pies with personality that don't stray too far from tradition, they focus on honing and perfecting conventional pie fillings. Then they get innovative with their crusts.

French Silk Pie filling gets a crumbled organic pretzel crust. A boozy pecan pie lounges in a chocolate shortbread crust. A smooth pumpkin pie custard sits on a crumbled gingersnap crust, and apple pie is capped in puffed pastry they turn in-house. The pair operate out of a leased commercial kitchen space in the Cedars and, aside from those pretzels, they fashion everything by hand, focusing on organic, preservative-free cooking.

Wrapped in parchment, tied in twine and boxed in brown cardboard, the pies present as well as they taste. Check out their snazzy website if you want to order one for the holiday, or stop by Corner Market and Urban Acres on Saturday morning for a taste.

Pie, pie. I love pie.

I'm going to go buy one of their apple pies but it won't make it to my parent's house for Christmas. I'm going to eat it all by myself.

Jesus, is the internet broken?  This place has f+cking tumbleweeds blowing down the main street........7 sh+tty stories; 12 comments!  How the f+ck does this thing exist?  If I owned Kergi's Subs, and 4 people came in on a given day; then Kergi's Subs would be closed within a month.  

To Joe Tone's Employer,    F+ck a writers job; I'll be THE editor up in this dirty, rotting carcass of smelly dong shit.  I'll take half the pay, and be as prodigious as a cockroach on Viagra.  F+cksh+t!  

I protest:-no more "whitewarshed" and sanitized bullsh+t (Jackie Floyd has the market cornered).-no more stories about Jack's Burger Stand; I have it on authority it makes his head swell to deathly proportions, and-ummmmmm, Maple and Motor ain't that great!-no more flaccid, dong ridden dribbling stories about celebrity bartenders...we don't give a FLYING f+ck.-lock Jesse Hughey out of the DO offices.-more LDD.-More FOODDICK, less Foodbitch.-spray Mary with bugspray.

Kergi's Grill--BBQ Chix:

-split breats-marinate in sprite, olive oil and fajita spice (marinate for atleast 1 day)-cook over indirect heat for 1 hour-apply homemeade BBQ sauce liberally (ya'll know how to make it!)

enjoy with:red beans and rice-cornbread

Salute'.  Kergie out!  AND guess what?  I'm being censored-and that's BULLSHIT.  Is this Russia, where we don't have a free voice?  Isn't that what makes this country great.  Shame. Shame.

if I owned Observer's Subs, and the same guy kept coming in everyday to complain about the place, i'd wonder what the hell's wrong with that guy.

Fuzzys tacos suck, like pure blech, shitty construction of said taco with marginal flavor.  Id rather eat a taco bell taco than go spend $12 at Fuzzys. Leave it to my fellow white brethern to fuck up a taco

A white boy taco, something like "Urban Taco" or "Fuzzy's Tacos" or "Rusty's Tacos" or "Taco Joint"...

If you lived in a place where you resided for THREE years, and you complained to HOA, would you leave "yer" abode.....thanks F+ckhead!  Ever heard of the "voice of reason"?  Well, have another taco sh+thead.

My count is 7 stories, 11 comments.  WOW, this place is desolate, and weeping for a jolt of energy.  AND I've  got nothing today, NOTHING!  So I can't help today.  Maybe JBG, or SG can give us a run at it?
