The ChipShop and was sad that they took their Twice Fried Cherry Pies off the menu before I had a chance to try them. But cardiologists in the tri-state area rejoice! The pies are BAACKK...
The other night I met up with a friend for dinner at the ChipShop. We worked out way through a couple of my on menu favorites--the Wild Mushroom Mac & Cheese and the Curried Chicken over Chips. When it came time for dessert, I happened to glance in the direction of the specials board and noticed that the Twice Fried Cherry Pies were back in action. Score!
They take two Hostess Cherry Pies, batter them in a lightly sweetened batter and deep fry them. It's diabolically delicious. Even my friend, who doesn't normally like cherry pie, couldn't resist. You can still taste the sweet original fried pie crust you remember from your childhood, the additional ChipShop batter just takes it to another whole level of friedom.
