It’s been way too long since my last post, and I think one reason for the gap is that, while I always have ideas for posts here at GFC, I never have (or make) the time to do what I really like to do – write a long, detailed review. So I’m trying something different. Here’s a quick review of a delightful new (to me) place to which I was introduced by a coworker this week.
I tried the Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop in Bearden this week. In fact, after being taken there by a coworker during lunch, I returned with my wife and son after dinner that evening. It was that good.
They sell pies, both 4” individual and 9” full-sized versions. They also sell biscuits, although I didn’t sample any. I may swing by on the way to the office one morning to pick up a batch of biscuits for breakfast for the office at some point, based on the quality of the pies alone.
The pies seem a tad pricey, but only a tad, and I didn’t mind at all given how good they were. In fact, one peevish reviewer on Urbanspoon commented on the price being way too high and I think that’s nuts. Do they cost more than buying something from the grocery store? Probably. But they’re no more expensive than dessert at a decent restaurant, and less expensive than many. 4” pies are $4.25 each, 4 for $16, or a dozen for $42. 9” pies are $26.
At lunch, I had the Key Lime and my coworker had the Peanut Butter & Chocolate. The Key Lime was delicious and likely what I’ll get from now on as it is my favorite kind of pie. When I returned that evening with my family, we all had Peanut Butter & Chocolate. It was very good, if not quite as awesome to my taste buds as the Key Lime. Pics below.
If you’re looking for a delightful fresh-made dessert, I don’t think you can go wrong with Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop.
