|Cool, daddio (spell check wanted to change it to "radio)|
|Pumpkin Pie at da Norske Nook ya hey|
|Strawberry Rhubarb pie at da Norske Nook|
|Caramel Apple Walnut pie, my mother thought it was missing something|
|Strawberry Rhubarb pie ala mode at Hubbard Ave|
|What was missing was some of my ice cream although it looks like mashed potatoes. We are not yet at the point of putting mashed potatoes on pie|
My mother enjoyed both her Norske Nook Pumpkin pie and the Hubbard Avenue Caramel Apple Walnut. She especially enjoyed her pie with my ice cream. She was most enthused about the Pumpkin pie from the Norske Nook and isn't it weird it's in season? Is it fall in Norway?
Hubbard Avenue's Strawberry Rhubarb pie with its crumbly crust along with them asking if we wanted our dessert warmed and a la mode made it the Strawberry Rhubarb pie winner—June 9 is Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day.
The Nook's Strawberry Rhubarb pie was too cold with an almost raw crust and uninspiring filling. The soft, undercooked doughy approach sets my teeth on edge and I see it way too often in cookies and other pastry. How do you like your bakery crusts, brown and crispy or the wrong way?
