Pie season is here! And with that comes the need for delicious pies with every occasion. But if you don't feel like baking, that's okay, because Fort Smith has more than a few great places to find a delicious pie. No matter what kind of pie you fancy, you are sure to find one. Whether it be a cherry pie, apple pie, or even a pumpkin pie.
Baking a pie might seem like an easy thing to do, but in reality it's not. There is a lot that goes into making the perfect pie. From the flavoring to the ingredients, most people want a pie that hits every part of their taste buds. The best pie is one that has been prepared and baked by hand, and if you can get one fresh, it's even better.
The pie scene in Fort Smith is exciting, and there are many places to choose from. I've traveled to so many cities and towns and experienced a lot of pies, but Fort Smith has one of the best selections I've come across. The great thing about this town is that most of the pies are original and homemade.
The first pie spot that comes to mind is definitely Miss Anna's on Towson. This place is an old Fort Smith institution that has been here for a long time. When you first walk into the restaurant, a display greets you counter with all the fresh baked pies for the day. The colorful arrangement of pies has just about anything you could want.
The Lemon Supreme pie is a delicious take on an old classic, and it's made with fresh lemon meringue and whipped cream. If you want a more traditional take, there are the usual pecan and pumpkin pies to choose from. If you think every pumpkin pie is the same, it isn't, and the pumpkin pies served at Miss Anna's are delicious.
The pumpkin pie is served nice and cold with a thick filling, and the crust is nice and crunchy. If you want something a bit more traditional, then you can't go wrong with a coconut cream pie. The cream is whipped to perfection, while the rest of the pie has exceptional flavors. If you've been wanting an original pie, then you can't go wrong with the selection here.
Harvest Moon Bakery is another great pie stop in Fort Smith, albeit this one is a little more artisan feeling than the last stop was. Harvest Moon Bakery has a number of great items to choose from including handmade pies. You can build a pie with whatever type of ingredients you like, and they bake these to order.
There are also premade pies baked fresh. Usually whatever you see on the rack is hot and fresh, and it generally sells out pretty quickly. In addition to the artisan pies there are also cupcakes, tiny cakes and a number of other great items to choose from. There is also a lunch and coffee menu, so there is always something to enjoy here.
Every bakery has a unique way that they bake a pie and Harvest Moon Bakery is no different. They take care with each and every pie that they create and the ingredients are always fresh. Pie season is among us, and there is nothing better than sitting down and enjoying a fresh baked pie. You can't go wrong with the one of a kind flavor and ingredients.
Remember that these are just two of my favorite pie spots in Fort Smith, but there are so many others to choose from. The culinary scene in Fort Smith is diverse, and there are so many great options to choose from.
