The Honey Pot (Part 2)

(Original Review -- March 2012)

I returned to The Honey Pot at the end of January. I enjoyed the savory pie on my previous visit, and I wanted to finally sample one of Mary's sweet creations.

I love pie and demand that several be served at all my major life events -- so that I can eat them all and become a fluffy panda.

As usual, The Honey Pot had about three savory choices and four sweet options. I didn't waste any time ordering a slice of the "Pendleton" ($4.75): dark chocolate and pecans in a Pendleton whiskey custard and a chocolate shortbread crust. Added fresh whipped cream to mine, because that's how the panda rolls.

FYI, it's $22 for the entire pie, and while my wallet would be crying tears of agony, my stomach would be crying tears of joy.

In my opinion, the Pendleton is a must-try. Despite the ingredients, it's fairly light overall. Wonderful flaky chocolate shortbread crust. The whiskey custard looked like a caramel color and texture, very inviting. I loved that the pie wasn't overly sweet, excellent control there.

The "Betty Blue" ($3.75 slice, $18 whole) is a double-crusted blueberry pie with hints of lemon and cinnamon. Also, the "Good ol' Granny" ($3.75 slice, $18 whole) is a double-crusted apple pie using a vanilla bean, cinnamon, clove, and lemon. Doesn't help that I usually write these blog posts late at night because now I'm hungry for some pie again.

The Honey Pot turns one year old on 3/14. Be sure to visit the cart on that day!
