You Can Never Get Sick of Apple Pie, Especially at The Pie Hole
But this pie is another specimen altogether. The double-crusted apple pie from The Pie Hole is stellar in a number of ways. First, the crusts are buttery and flakey, the Platonic ideal of what an apple pie should be. On top of that they cover the top with sugar and brulee the darn thing so it's caramelized, crunchy, and freaking sweet. The apples themselves are thinly slices and seasoned with just enough cinnamon to give them character. Wide a dollop of fresh whipped cream (the real stuff), it's possibly the best Sunday afternoon snack ever. On top of that, the Arts District is quite the scene on the weekends, the perfect place to feel like a hipster even though you're not really one anymore. My pants are just not tight enough, sadly. I have that pie to thank.
