Baked Good of the Day: "Mile High" Apple Pie from More Than Just Ice Cream, Philadelphia

Mile High Pie

At More Than Just Ice Cream in Philadelphia, they have a deep dish “mile high apple pie” that is served more in slabs than in slices, and they cost about $7 each. But, to their credit, they are extremely huge. Like, bigger than your head huge. 

This pie is huge!

I had purchased a slice of it to make some pie parfaits and was still left with about 2 pounds of pie, so I did what any red-blooded dessert lover would: I ate the thing.

With ice cream, thankyouverymuch. And not just any ice cream—cinnamon roll ice cream. Yes, good idea. It was also from More Than Just Ice Cream, though they do not make it on site. It had real chunks of cinnamon roll in it. It might sound like too much, but it's not.

BIG pie

What to say about the pie? It was good if not great—it was a good sharing dessert and not too pricey considering the size. But I wouldn't call it a highly faceted dessert or one with a deep flavor profile. But sometimes that is just fine,because it paired very nicely with the ice cream and worked very well as a breakfast the next morning.

Pie

Sometimes serviceable is what you need in a dessert, and this one fits the bill. It's fun because of the size and shape, and a pleasant sweet to share with a friend or two. Or five.

Sweet of the Day: Baracky Road Ice Cream, Molly Moon's, Seattle

Sweet of the Day honors go to Molly Moon's today, because they have the cleverest name for an ice cream flavor I've heard, possibly ever: Baracky Road. Here's what they have to say about it:

The 2012 presidential election season is upon us and at Molly Moon's we’re having a little fun with serious matters. Our hazelnutty twist on this ice cream classic was first introduced to Seattleites in September of 2008 and it was a sell-out flavor on a very memorable November 4!

Baracky Road, arriving in Molly Moon's scoop shops today, is our decadent Melted Chocolate ice cream studded with chunks of organic and fair-trade Theo 70% dark chocolate, organic hazelnuts from Meridian Organic Hazelnut Farm in Aurora, OR, and handmade vanilla bean marshmallows from Seattle’s own Mallow Artisan Marshmallows!
Did ya know William Dreyer of Oakland, CA originally created Rocky Road ice cream in March of 1929 when he cut up marshmallows with his wife's sewing scissors and added them, along with walnuts, to his chocolate ice cream? The walnuts were soon replaced by pieces of toasted almond and after the Wall Street crash of 1929, Dreyer gave the flavor its Rocky Road name "to give folks something to smile about" as Americans realized what a "rocky road" lay ahead in the Great Depression. It's always been a mission of ours, at Molly Moon's, to give folks something to smile about. We hope this fall you can smile through the contentious debates, endless campaign ads, and ridiculous pundits -- one scoop of Baracky Road at a time!

Sweet of the Day: Salty Krispie Treat by Street Treats, Seattle

Imagine a Rice Krispie Treat. Now, give it a luxuriant bath in brown butter, and stir in a sprinkling of sea salt. The Salty Krispy Treat ($2) is a grown-up rendition of a classic childhood treat, and a combination which will leave you with serious cravings for more. The true secret though? "Use good butter, not the cheap stuff", says owner Diane Scwierz.
