looking for great pie

I am looking for suggestions on where to get a great fruit pie. My family loves the blueberry lemon pie at the Dutch Market in Burtonsville but it's time to try something new. Where's the best pie in the area?

  1. Haussner's in Baltimore always had really good Strawberry Pies..

      You're right in your verb tense regarding Haussner's...they closed many many years ago.

      Don't know if you're looking in Howard County, Baltimore Metro, and/or Washington Metro, but there was a pretty extensive thread on pies in Baltimore City earlier this fall. Good luck!

    2. Dangerously Delicious Pies on Light St. near Cross Street Market in Federal Hill in Baltimore. Easy trip from Burtonsville. Check their web site to see the long menu of pies, which are terrific. Served on last night for a dinner party--- apple, pear and cranberry.

        Do you know what the hours are for this place? I looked at their website and they dont have their hours/days open listed anywhere.

      2. Mom's Apple Pie is a Northern VA tradition. Arguably, their single best pie is not their regular apple pie but one called butter crusted which sells for about $18 or 20 and must be special ordered. There is a store on 123 in Vienna, "Pie ?," next to a very good Italian deli that has excellent cream pies. Reeve's, in D. C., had outstanding strawberry pies but I believe they finally closed. The Bethesda Farmwomens market had a baker with excellent pies, also, but it's been a couple of years since I was there.

          The name of the pie store in Vienna is Pie Gourmet. It's cream pies are very good. On the rare occasion when they have butterscotch cream pies, get one. Lemon chess is very good. But their best ones are their fruit pies, made with very fresh fruits, often without added sugar. They'll ship some of them and and particularly welcomed by college kids.

        2. The Best Pie Company in Bowie has been getting some rave reviews. Washingtonpost did a big piece on them a few months back.

          1. I know that Fenwick's in Parkville custard (and it's variations of it) pie have always gotten good reviews where I work. I'm partial to their pecan pie (although it looks kinda odd, it tastes yummy).
