Photo of the Day – July 19, 2011: Chocolate Pudding Pie from Pie Corps

Deep Chocolate Pudding Pie at the New Amsterdam Market
I know, right?!  This chocolate pudding pie from the wonderful bakers at Pie Corps at the New Amsterdam Market was absolutely amazing.  It is a free-standing deep pie, filled with rich chocolate pudding, and topped off with a cross-hatch of rosemary caramel on top.  It’s about 5 1/2 inches across, which should satisfy at least 2 people, or 1 chocoholic.

Pie Corps creates a wonderful variety of sweet and savory pies in different forms.  The hand pies are rectangular and easy to eat without a fork or plate.  Pie Corps also make something called a Jar Pie, which is a pie in a jar, for pie on the go I presume.  Their savory pies cover the spectrum from Caramelized Onion Goat Cheese and Olive Gallette and Slow-Cooked Pork Carnitas, to Macaroni & Three Cheese Pie with Onion Rings (!).  The sweet selection includes S’Mores Pie, Apricot Custard with Basil, Cafe au Lait Pie, and more.  Imagine the delicious meal you can have with nothing but pies from Pie Corps.

Pie Corps uses regional ingredients, including flour from New York State, butter from Vermont, and fruits, veggies, dairy and meats from farms throughout New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  So you know where your pies are coming from.  And you definitely know where they’re going – straight down the pie hole!

You can find these sweet and savory treats at the New Amsterdam Market every Sunday, and Pie Corps also offers catering and wholesale services.  So come try them for yourselves at New Amsterdam!  Your mouth will thank you, and your diet will just have to get over it.
