National Pie Day may have come and gone, but let’s be real. I don’t need a national food holiday to find a reason to eat pie. In fact I find myself celebrating National Pie Day at least once a week if I can: a slice of banana cream pie from Clementine, a cherry hand pie from Village Bakery, amongst others.
Coincidentally, I happened to get a very special delivery just in time for National Pie Day from Sarah Williams of fruit+flour, who happens to make the best pies in town!
I met Sarah a few months back through my good friend Krista. I was at Krista’s apartment enjoying a glass of wine when she asked if I’d like to have some of the crack pie her friend Sarah baked. Crack pie?! Do you even have to ask? So I eagerly dove in and enjoyed each buttery sweet bite. Then Sarah, the pie maker, came over. I have to tell you it was love at first bite! We got to talking about pie and her love of baking pies and I knew we would be friends.
So Sarah runs fruit+flour. She has an awesome pie of the month club, which I of course joined. Now each month I get to enjoy a new pie creation delivered right to my doorstep.
This month’s delivery, Goat Cheese Cheesecake with Grapefruit Curd, was mind-blowingly delicious. Delicate, velvety, tart and sweet, this is one of those pies that you want to savor, closing your eyes in bliss with each bite. It really is that good. I can’t wait for next month’s pie.
If you love pie, check out fruit+flour because Sarah Williams was born to make pie. I’m in love with her Pear & Cardamom pie and her Fig & Bourbon tart, but nothing holds a flame to the Goat Cheese Cheesecake w/ Grapefruit Curd. That is, until next month.
