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.
Given how texturally rich this pie is—like a cross between crème brûlée and pudding—it's amazing they manage to make clean slices all the way to the pointy tip at the center. There's a scoop of ice cream on the side to make it even more indulgent. The flavor is all robust coffee, completed with frizzles of candied ginger and fresh poached pears. Housemade dark chocolate sauce lines the plate, a heady complement to every component of this dish.
