If you checked the Bee's food and wine section a couple weeks back, you would have read about the mini-pie movement that's taken off around the country. You'll find examples locally at TreyBCakes and Becky Jo Pies both online and at Corti Brothers.
And starting today, Icing on the Cupcake will sell its "sweetie pies" each Friday for $3 a pop. Their line of mini-pies starts with homemade apple crumb pie, and a pecan pie will be coming for the holidays. At the risk of sounding like an advertorial, we had a chance to sample some of these "sweetie pies" and were wowed by them, from the tender crust to the very tasty apple topping. If you're interested in pre-ordering some pies, call (916) 303-4333.
