This, to me, is quintessential Americana: Pie a la mode. Altho we changed things up a little, and went for cherry pie and served it with hazelnut gelato, as opposed to the more traditional apple pie & ice cream.
Of course, I didn’t make it: I know when to leave things to the experts. Delicious Orchards in Colt’s Neck, New Jersey, is known nationally for its pie. (The New York Times has written it up.) So Judy and I went a little crazy on Sunday, with cherry AND pecan. You know, just in case.
How can you not love a shop that has a sign like this?
