Time for Pie


Published:

You might call the cooler weather and shorter days “fall”, but we like to call it “pie season”—time for extra layers and cozy desserts, like this slice of apple pie from Bankers Hill Bar + Restaurant. Their pastry chef Rachel Going’s lattice-crusted masterpiece is crafted from fresh-picked Fuji and Granny Smith apples, mixed with brown sugar, orange zest, and a cornucopia of spices, including cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, allspice, and a pinch of ginger. It’s rustic, comforting, and perfect for the season. The pie’s crowning achievement is the golden-brown crust, which is crisp and flaky, like puff pastry. Paired with a scoop of housemade vanilla bean ice cream, it’s the complete package (and not so surprisingly, one of the restaurant’s top sellers).
