must-have pies?

Dear Dessert Oasis,

What are the must have pies (and their available locations) to eat on this Pi Day? Specifically in or near Los Angeles for practical concerns, but please do tell if there are any other important pies to know about worldwide.

Also, are you celebrating Pi Day by making pie?

Yours Truly,

(I’m hoping to read the answer on your blog if you have time?) im not actually leaving the house today probably because of the LA marathon. But I really was curious.


Dear Anne-Louise,

I am currently debating whether to go to Pie Hole or Pie’n Burger to celebrate this Pi Day. I am not baking any pies today bc it’s too f-ing hot.

Some must-have pies:

  1. any cherry pie from Door County, Wisconsin.
  2. the strawberry-rhubarb pie from Peggy Sue’s 50’s Diner (in Yermo, CA – a MUST stop-off when driving to/from LA to Vegas)
  3. the peach pie from March Farms in Bethlehem, CT.  (you can also pick your own peaches, apples and blueberries there, and they taste like the best peaches, apples and blueberries you have ever eaten. )
  4. the apple pie from Apple Annie’s in Oak Glen, CA.  (photos below, but you really must see this yourself to believe it.  also while in Oak Glen, be sure to get the apple cider donuts from Snow-Line Orchard)

Thanks for reading, and happy pie-ing!!

PS: isn’t the marathon tomorrow??


Have a dessert question?  Email me at – from funnel cakes to fondue fountains, if it has sugar, I’ve probably eaten it.
