After a meal of RedFarm's salty food, this tangy pie is just the thing.
'pie' on Serious Eats
When pie is fresh from the oven at Lee Lee's, you can't help but go for it.
My best bite at the new Dinosaur Barbecue in Brooklyn wasn't the wings (awesome) or the ribs (awesomer). Don't get me wrong—the pits are running quite well here. But it was this fat slice of Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie ($5) that impressed me most: chocolate wafer crust and an inch and a half of light, airy peanut butter mousse.
It's always great to have a pie or cake-based dessert arrive at your table as an individual, self-contained unit instead of a slice. This indicates it was most likely baked that day, as is the case with 508's tart.
At the cafe inside McNally Jackson Books, next to the register, is an array of baked goods with cakes, cookies, pies, and scones. They come from many different vendors, and recently I've spotted a number of sweets from Brooklyn-based Pickle Petunia, such as this pie.
Meghan Daly of Daly Pie attributes the popularity of her pie crust to two things: she uses all butter, no shortening or lard, and she does everything by hand, with no help from a food processor or mixer. That way, she says, it's easier to make sure there are different size bits of butter in the dough, which is what makes the crust extra flaky. "It really has that handmade quality," she adds.
Say hello to pie, one of the few non-cupcake items offered on occasion at Butter Lane.
Regardless of when you visit Balthazar Bakery, you will always find a Rustic Galette ($5.95) on the menu. The seasonal fruit toppings change often—think plums, berries, and peaches—but you can always count on that generously sized and supremely flaky tart.
Stumptown's pastries don't always get the love that they should. Change that with these two sweet treats.
Thanks to everyone who came out for our Pie and Wine Social at the Brooklyn Winery on Sunday, a delicious fundraiser for Edible Schoolyard. It was a nice escape from the rainy gray day outside, especially under the skylight in the Williamsburg winery's atrium where we nibbled on some of our favorite pies in the city. With a slice in one hand and a wine glass in the other, it was a fun way to spend the fall afternoon.
Got plans this Sunday afternoon? Want to eat pie and drink wine with us? Sure you do.

This Salted Key Lime Pie ($10) is intense. The flavors come as a one-two tart and salty punch. It's only after your tastebuds recover from that initial shock of flavors do you focus on the creamy, cool pie filling.
Pies can be a hit or miss at Hill Country Chicken, but this three-inch Blueberry Pie ($3.50) is one of their best this season.
Blueberry Pie ($11) is on the menu this week, one wide slice, a flaky double crust outfitted in powdered sugar and ring of crème anglaise. The blueberries are plentiful and naturally sweet, whole berries accented with lemon juice.
Eleven picture-perfect meringue petals top the S'mores Tart ($10) at CraftBar. They're toasted a deep golden brown, and to fully appreciate them, you'll want to sink you fork all the way though the bottom of the tart shell, capturing the lush, almost frothy chocolate custard.
This is a gorgeously crisp, beautifully buttery pastry showcase for rich, jammy plums and deeply nutty almonds. It's plenty sweet, but in a plush, luxurious way—and just tart enough to stay balanced.

Sweet potato pies never really get the attention they deserve, often sitting in the shadows of pumpkin. So you'll have to thank Peels for bringing sweet potato pie front and center this fall.
I could eat pie every single day during the autumn months. Seasonally appropriate pies of stone fruit, pumpkin or sweet potato—there's nothing I could tire of. At The Dutch, the Buttermilk Custard Pie is recent addition the menu. It's never just pie here, even though that may be what you order. This silky cool custard pie comes with a clean buttermilk tang, all resting against a crumbly, well-spiced backdrop, a gingersnap crust.
