The Best Pies Ever

Grand_Traverse_Pie_Company_West_Bay_Blueberry_Crumb_Pie_on_foodydirect

Just how good are these freshly-baked pies from Traverse City, Michigan’s Grand Traverse Pie Company? Put it this way: Famed chef Mario Batali calls them “a religious experience.” Founded in 1996, this family owned bakery prides itself on making pies the old-fashioned way—by handcrafting premium ingredients, including fresh local fruit, into exquisite (and notably substantial) pies that are slowly cooked to crisp-crumble-topped perfection. Try Mario’s favorite–the cherry crumb pie–or reach for peach, blueberry, strawberry-rhubarb, or more. Whatever you get, we promise you’ll be blown away. Order Now
