Mini Pies at the Pie Joint

I’ve been on a “pie quest” recently. I tried to get pie multiple times and failed on multiple accounts. On St. Patrick’s Day I was determined to finally get pie and I choose The Pie Joint as the place to go!

But first…. a cheesesteak.

I mean… it was right next door to The Pie Joint. Had to do it. For some reason I told Jake to get the Giant 18″ sub. Could I finish eating my half? Nope, sure couldn’t. I can’t eat like I used to. But I got my fill of cheesesteak!

The Pie Joint also serves savory pies but I was only interested in dessert pies that day. I think I might want to come back for a Chicken Pot Pie or Pork Enchilada. Those both sound tasty!

They didn’t have mini drunk apple pies or triple berry so I didn’t get to try those.

The mini pies are $2.99 each or $1 if you purchase a savory pie.

The crust isn’t the prettiest, but it sure did taste good. The crust had a buttery taste and flaky texture and was the perfect little bottom for each mini pie. My favorites of the bunch: the tart lemon meringue – the lemon filling was just the right amount of sweetness and tartness and was so creamy! I also loved the mini chocolate mint pie (the green one). It wasn’t overly minty and paired nicely with the chocolate. I’m also a sucker for coconut cream which had a good punch of coconut flavor in the mini pie.

I quite enjoyed our tasting of mini pies and I will definitely be back to try the savory stuff and more tiny pies!
