Best Apple Pie in Boston?
So . . . I've never had apple pie before, and while all of my friends make fun of me for this, I really want to have my first slice to be the best possible to give apple pies a real chance. So I'm really hoping you guys had a really scrumptious piece of pie here in Boston that you can tell me about!
Are you from another country? Not a traditional apple pie, but I love the upside down apple dessert at McCormick & Schmick.
TC, a dessert hound, would go back to Coach Grille in Wayland JUST for the apple pie...They're related to Abe and Louis, so maybethey share a pastry chef?
It was full of apples, flakey crust, and not too sweet. served a la mode. A fine version to rate others against in the future.
Tastes in apple pie vary considerably, so I would recommend trying a few to give this classic dish a fair chance. Apple pie is my favorite dessert of all, but I am really picky and there are plenty of pies that I do not like. Although vanilla ice cream has become standard with apple pie, my older new england relatives still like their pie with a chunk of sharp cheddar cheese, or in a bowl with (fresh) cream. My personal favorite - room temperature apple pie for breakfast (no ice cream, though - that would be gross)
Never had apple pie?
Wow. I hope you enjoy your first slice. Petsi's, as mentioned, is good. I'd guess Flour Bakery makes a good one, too.
But here's the million dollar question: are you going to top it with a slice of cheddar cheese?
