I have been dying to try a pie from The Pie Hole for quite some time now, but hadn't had an excuse to buy a full pie. So, when I was in charge of dessert for a fabulous brunch that I was invited to (it may have been fabulous because the cutest little baby boy ever was there), I decided this was my chance and emailed Jenell to see if there was any way I could order a pie with only 1.5 days notice. Lucky for me, Jenell was super accommodating...I was able to pick up my pie on the way to the brunch and I was super excited to see that they make my favourite pie flavour: Strawberry-Rhubarb!
I was a little worried that the ladies at the brunch would feel that I had copped out by buying the dessert, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were all excited when they saw The Pie Hole label...they'd been dying to try their pies too! The conclusion? Absolutely heavenly! One of the best pie crusts I've ever tasted and jam-packed full of yummy, fruity goodness. I swear the pie weighed 8-10 pounds. It was unbelievable and tasted like it had just come out of your Grandma's oven. If I had a dollar for every time someone said "This is delicious Shayne" and I had to say "Thanks, but I didn't make it myself"...I would have been a millionaire! Well, maybe not quite since there were only 8 of us there...but I would have definitely made $8 (I even said it to myself).
Thanks for the fabulous pie Jenell! I can't wait to try more flavours...especially the savoury ones...Mac & Cheese pie here I come!
Things to note: (1) To order a pie, go to The Pie Hole's website (below) and either email or phone Jenell. (2) The Pie Hole makes sweet pies, savoury pies, pie pops, tarts and treats, hand pies and pie holes. All flavours are listed under the menu link on their website. (3) A variety of stores are now carrying their pies in store. A list of the stores and what they carry is on The Pie Hole's website. (4) They accept cash and VISA, but make sure you have enough cash in case the VISA thingy is down. Those phone swipey things were a fabulous invention but if only someone could invent one that always worked! and (5) I was very happy to discover that The Pie Hole makes individual pies. Dangerous and fabulous discovery, all at once.

My slice of pie and ice cream.
The X that marks the spot! Picking up your pie is half the fun. You'll want to turn East on Industrial from Main. When you see the purple building, turn left into the parking lot and drive to the very end.
Go into the last store of the building and walk to the back right corner. You'll find Jenell and your fabulous pie!
So excited to open this puppy up!
You've got to love it when the ingredient list consists of 12 ingredients, all of which you can pronounce and either have in your pantry, fridge or garden. Brilliant!
