Hoosier Mama Pie shop
I picked up pie from Hoosier Mama for the second time this past weekend. Between our two visits, we've tried the following flavors:
-Pear cranberry crumble - absolutely delicious
-Lemon meringue - fantastic and I don't even like meringue, but theirs was very good
-Peanut Butter - very decadent and delicious, although seriously rich
-Apple rhubarb - simple, tart and delicious
-Key Lime - the best of all I've tried. It has the most fabulous gingersnap crust. A must try.
If I was forced to choose, I probably wouldn't get the PB pie again b/c it was so rich. However, I want to underscore that it was delicious, just a little too much for me. The shop staff are extremely friendly and helpful--willing to make recommendations on the day's flavors. Worth a little extra dough (pun intended) for these fantastic pies.
I'd like to try it...I live right around the corner from the shop and I love pie. However, their hours don't line up very for someone who works 8 to 5 so I haven't been able to get there yet. I think they are open on Saturday so maybe I'll get there this weekend.
There is quite a bit of activity on this stretch of Chicago Avenue. Branch 27, Hoosier Mama and a new bakery (can't remember the name) just opened. I also like La Fama bakery just down the street from Hoosier Mama.
Sorry for the ramble...I look forward to seeing some reviews of Hoosier Mama.
