Midwest Living Review
This popular pie shop cranks out an impressive array of pies, especially considering they're all made by hand, without shortcuts like commercial dough or premade pie fillings. Cream pie offerings include limoncello cream, peanut butter fudge and sour cream raisin. Fruit pie flavors include several takes on apple pie (apple berry, apple raisin pecan), triple berry and a Swedish-inspired blackberry pear with cardamom. You can purchase whole pies ($18), slices and a sampler consisting of two half-slices. Stockholm Pie Company rotates through about 30 different flavors; you can call a few days ahead with a special order if you have your heart set on a particular flavor. They whip up some savory pies, too, various blends of meat, cheese, veggies and spices, held together with an egg and cream custard. Examples include apple/sausage/cheddar and pear/bacon/blue cheese. Have a slice of that, and you can still have sweet pie for dessert! The Stockholm Pie Company is open Thursday through Sunday. It's good stuff, but faces some tough competition from the great pies at the Smiling Pelican up the road in Maiden Rock.
