Martha Stewart Never Steers You Wrong

I wrote yesterday that my only complaint about trailers was the inconsistency in operating hours. This is not entirely true. I also wish more trailers took credit cards. It’s completely understandable why a trailer would choose to go cash only – heck, even some brick and mortar restaurants like the Salt Lick only take greenbacks – but it is still a bit of an inconvenience.

After our supper at Mighty Cone the other night (and a frantic search for a working ATM), we chose to top the evening off with something sweet and headed down the block to Cutie Pies. Jaynie Buckingham, the self-proclaimed Pie Queen owner of Cutie Pies has been heralded in Southern Living and Martha Stewart Living magazines as one sensational pie maker. And, boy, was Martha right.

The mini pies that Cutie Pies serves up for $4 a pop are excellent summer treats that reminded me of the Fourth of July, baseball, and barbecuing in my grandparent’s backyard. If a pastry from Jaynie’s kitchen doesn’t make you feel like celebrating summer, I don’t know what will.

Sharmonica ordered:

  • Cherry Berry (Blue) Pie – The filling in this pie was a little thin, but it was so scrumptious and really tasted homemade.

I (Franzia) ordered:

  • Key Lime Pie – This cool, custard-y confection was deliciously tart and perfect for a humid summer day.

Coot ordered:

  • White Chocolate Coconut Pecan Pie – I have never been a fan of white chocolate, but even I had to admit that the combination of coconut and pecan pie was heaven-sent. Coot was feeling extra generous and bought an extra pie to take home with him.

The Pie Queen tells us that she is most famous for her Buttermilk Pie, which was sold out when we paid a visit to Cutie Pies. Go see Jaynie and try the pie if you’re in the neighborhood. You won’t regret it.
