Last Saturday I was ready to attend a party.

A party with pies. A room Fulla pies. And people. And fun. And did I mention pies? There was pie.

And I missed it.

You see, what had happened was…

I made my super special ever-popular buttery pie dough.

I made fillings. I was going to make 96 itty bitty pies in two different flavors and pile them high, high with these fillings.

I had my outfit ready. I was wearing leggings with plenty of stretch. I was going to PacMan my way through several tables of pie. Real talk.

I was ready.


And I didn’t make it.

I was sick. The kind of sick you try to convince yourself (and errbody else) you’re not sick. But you’re sick. When you fall asleep in the middle of a conversation with guests in the house, you’re sick.

I had plans to attend one of the best food events this city has to offer, hosted by a duo as effervescent as a 2-liter bottle of Pepsi. My body on the other hand, was on some eff your feelings bullshit and would not cooperate.

I slept through Pie Party Live.

Yeah, man. Straight slept through the pie photos, the pie eating, the pie conversations, and hugging all the people you speak to almost every day – Yet only see once or twice a year.

I was bummed as hell.

And when I was up to it, in sad face, I ate a lot of mini pies.

These Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake pies are itty bitty. They are, at most, a two bite situation. It’s mostly one bite. It’s definitely one bite. Don’t let its diminutive size fool you – This one bite situation is a buttery flaky explosion of fall flavor.

The light-as-air pumpkin cheesecake filling with an array of fall spice is amazing. You’re going to put it in everything. I have. And will continue to. At least till pumpkin season is over and I move onto the next thing. Topped high in mini pie shells is the best way to enjoy this filling. For serious.
