A Slice Of American Pie
September 01, 2011
Pie makes everything better. We would have world peace if everyone sat down together and shared a slice. In Dearborn, the place to eat a bit of heaven can be found at Cook's Corner Cafe on Main Street. I’ve been there three times this week for my favorite pie, coconut, which is baked in a flaky crust and topped with at least 4 inches of meringue.
In addition to eating a good pie, I enjoy making one. Try one of the books below to create your own masterpiece:
- Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking – Tried and true recipes for good pies. This book also contains instructions for other yummy Mennonite fair.
- Easy As Pie – The book does what it says, it makes cooking a pie so simple anyone could do it. All recipes call for the use of refrigerated pie crust.
- Mom’s Best Desserts – If you want a taste of home, this book is for you. Recipes that will transport you to simpler times.
- Icebox Pies – Should you not want to heat up your entire house, you should try out some of these recipes. Pies that are ready in a jiffy and as delicious as if you had slaved over a hot stove to make them.
When you pass through Dearborn, make your way to Cook’s Corner Café, and we’ll eat some pie together. See you soon!
