|Black Cherry Pie|
Many good things come from Canada, but I never thought pie would be one of them. And not just pie, but a whole company dedicated to pie. The word pie itself evokes wholesome images of forks diving into soft flaky layers of short crust pastry revealing sumptuous gooey layers of fruit composites beneath. Unless you're a physicist of course, then we have a whole other pi story... But a whole company dedicated to just these simple pleasures? God bless The Canadian Pie Company.
It was freezing cold in Toronto the day I visited and all I kept repeating in my mind was "you're almost at the pie, you're almost at the pie..." Pie would surely warm the glacial crevices now freezing the very cockles of my heart. And oh how a slice of black cherry pie did...! God bless pie.
They offered savoury pies as well, but I obviously just focused on the dessert pies! They use locally grown fruits and vegetables to ensure freshness and quality, and each pie is hand-made and baked from scratch daily.
"As every pie lover knows, the beginning of a great pie is the crust—and ours is a very unique crust, almost a cross between puff pastry and croissant, versus the traditional harder pie crust so the result is a very light, airy crust, yet still very buttery." Canadian Pie Company.

I think Michael Kors was channelling The Canadian Pie Company in his latest Fall 2012 collection...
