Pie Patrol: The Most Scrumptious Slices in CLT

Don't flake on ordering these baddies for your holiday dinner. 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it.  Our Pie Patrol crew canvassed the city, scoping out the most scrumptious slices to add to your holiday dinner.  Our personal recommendation: order all.  Then you can support another local business when you need to buy new pants. Win win.

Pecan Tart – Amélie’s French Bakery & Café

Amélie’s French Bakery & Café

Pecan Tart – a personal pan pie!  (Who else found Pizza Hut’s personal pan pizzas to be the ultimate decadence in dining in the early 90s?)  Somehow, this beauty is both light and rich simultaneously.  A great size for eating with a cup of coffee.
