Pi(e) Day may have been last week, but the day is really a reminder for how much we love pie and how much more of it we should be eating. And what better way to eat it than at a place aptly named Pietisserie?!
Located right next to Lake Merritt in Oakland, Pietisserie is the brainchild of Jaynelle St. Jean. She began by giving away slices of her creations to neighbors by her mother’s home, soon after launching the store to continue to bringing customers sweetness at scale.
While I love the classics, to me, the pies that stand out at Pietisserie are the unique flavor combinations—raspberry in a chocolate crust, yam ginger, and grapefruit custard to name a few. There are savory pies as well, and for your weekend endeavors brunch pies.
If you hadn’t noticed with my last recipe post, I’m pretty addicted to cardamom, so one of my favorites at Pietisserie is the Spiced Apple Pie with Cardamom-Oat Crumble. Even better, Jaynelle graciously gave me the recipe to share!
