A SLICE OF HEAVEN...
AT 5:30 AM EVERY FRIDAY MORNING...when most of us are snuggled in our beds waiting for the alarm to go off...the Mennonite bakers at PILGRIM PANTRY in Monroe, WI are hands-deep in flour and shortening and fruit, making 400 pies and assorted pastries by hand to bring to market the folowing day. They've been selling their lovely pies, turnovers, fruit breads and granolas at the Market for the past seven years. I tried their Blackberry Pie and it was rich and thick with berries and had a lovely tart/sweet flavor that could only have been improved with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream. I'm going back...yup...for another Blackberry Pie. It was that good!
