The house motto at Emporium Pies is “Fine Pies for Fine Folk”.  They are being much too humble. These pies are better than fine.  Every one is made by hand using the highest quality ingredients; and the crusts are nothing less than world class.  This is one of the nation’s great pie shops.

Count on seven or more different flavors available every day, and these rotate seasonally.  Fruit pies like the Cherry Bomb shine in the Spring and Summer. Cherries strike the proper balance between sweet and tart, but an elegant, buttery crust is what makes me swoon.  In the Fall, savvy pie lovers will order Drop Dead Gourdgeous, a smooth pumpkin custard with a heavy does of cinnamon inside a sugary gingerbread crust.  Closer to the holidays, keep an eye out for Father Christmas, a light peppermint cream in a firm chocolate cookie crust, as well as Buttermilk Blitzen, which adds chai spice to the tang of a traditional buttermilk pie.

The true star of the menu is the aptly named Lord of the Pies.  This is a double crusted caramel apple pie, with an awe-inspiring tall stack of sliced and soft baked fruit, finally topped with a generous layer of cinnamon streusel.  A more beautiful apple pie you will never see.

The original store is in the Bishop Arts District. Emporium Pies has since expanded to the Deep Ellum neighborhood and the north suburb town of McKinney
