Having two locations in Portland, Maine, this renowned bakery which was established in 2005 specializes in all-American desserts, which are made fresh every day from scratch using only the freshest, highest quality ingredients, and has two locations in the city. Two Fat Cats' signature flaky crust is baked with real butter and local eggs, and the famous wild blueberries are tossed in with sugar and warm spices to make this classic pie. Whether you wish to enjoy this quintessential summer treat a la mode or on its own, Maine has to offer sweet, plump berries which are the star of this quintessential summer treat.

Three Berry Pie, Little Pie Company

The Broadway actor Arnold Wilkerson started a side business in 1985 as a result of a love for baking that stemmed from his grandmother's love of cutting up fresh apples from her backyard tree for her own homemade pies. Having started his own pie shop in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood in the early 1990s, Wilkerson soon became well-known for his hand-crafted baked goods that were among the best in the city. Despite decades of accolades, the Little Pie Company's scratch-made desserts continue to gain accolades.

During baking, the lattice crust gets golden brown and crispy.

Known for its one-of-a-kind desserts, including more than 50 different varieties of sweet treats, along with homemade empanadas and pot pies, this South Florida-based bakery is managed by former Miami firefighter Derek Kaplan. Although we are all familiar with the famous Key Lime pie that the eponymous bake shop has been serving since opening in 2013, another truly unique pie was what tempted our taste buds, even though it was topped with fresh juice from almost two pounds of local citrus. Despite the thick layer of homemade streusel, underneath the layer of juicy berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries) you'll find that the tropical taste has been enhanced with fragrant guava.

Marionberry Pie, Willamette Valley Pie Company

There have been several kinds of berries cultivated by the Willamette Valley Pie Company since it was founded by the Roth family in 1999, among them marionberries—a blackberry hybrid that is distinctive to Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and is named for the county in which it grows. With a rich, earthy juiciness, the berries have been dubbed "the Cabernet of blackberries." This best-selling pie features over a pound of ripe, fresh marionberries hand-crimped on a crust that is scratch-made from only seven natural ingredients, ensuring that there is no artificial ingredients.

Raspberry Chocolate Pie, Pietisserie

She started baking pies as a hobby at her mother's San Francisco home, giving away slices from a country window staged in her mother's kitchen. After experiencing a plethora of pie offerings in her mother's house, Jannielle St. Jean decided that her passion for pie was the calling she had been looking for, and in 2010, she launched Pietisserie in Oakland.

In her sweet and savory artisan pies, which come in five distinct collections: the woven collection, the pastel collection, crumble collection, the open collection, and the cocoa collection, Jean uses only the finest natural ingredients from regional producers. It is one of the best-tasting cocoa-based treats we've ever had at the bakery - offering two pounds of raspberry goodness encased in a chocolate double crust and with the perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors.

Lord of the Pies, Emporium Pies

The Bishop Arts District’s Megan Wilkes and Mary Gauntt handcraft delicious pies using local and seasonal ingredients in a newly renovated Victorian bungalow from the 1930s. With high-quality ingredients (never anything artificial) and whimsical names, Emporium Pies puts an innovative spin on traditional flavors. A true masterpiece of an apple pie, Lord of the Pies is a deep-dish delight made with ten big apples that have been softly baked with housemade caramel and then topped with crisp cinnamon streusel. As well as offering local delivery in the Dallas area, Goldbelly also has the capability of shipping this towering treat throughout the country.
