Roni-Sue (one of our favorite places in NYC), son Corwin cooking at the Fattys, and now daughter Allison starting First Prize Pies. They could probably start auctioning off tickets to a Kave Family Dinner and get top-dollar.
1st Annual Brooklyn Pie Bake-Off last November, and of course as soon as Brownie and I heard that she would be selling pies out of Roni-Sue on Saturdays, it was a race who could get pie first. To the winner, go the spoils-my tummy said "thank you." Since my famous S'mores Cupcake I'll admit that I haven't come across a sold bakery item that's better than mine. Until I ate the Allison's S'more pie, that is. It's the pie version of my cupcake-graham cracker crust, milk chocolate ganache, and toasted marshmallow topping, and quite possibly the best tasting thing I ate all weekend. It all comes together so perfectly, nothing overwhelming, truly the sum is greater than the parts. One slice is enough to satisfy a craving, but I completely plan on buying a pie as a summer BBQ dessert (or for a post-breakup vegging binge.)
I'm completely prepared to try every pie Allison can concoct, they're available at www.firstprizepies.com, as dessert at Fatty 'Cue, every Saturday at Roni-Sue in the Essex Street Market, every Sunday starting April 11th at the Good Buns Market in Williamsburg, and beginning April 24th at the Hester Street Fair on Hester & Essex
