“We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.”
― David Mamet,
We could not agree more with the playwright Mamet. Everyone has their favourites of course. And we think we have eaten just about every pie available in Muskoka because that is our go-to dessert (see quote above.) But our current pie love is for Crossroads Restaurant in Rosseau. Their gourmet shop is now open every weekend and in addition to a variety of fruit pies, features donuts, breads, smoked fish and chicken and many more delicacies also found in the restaurant. But the pies! Our guests favour the cherry but we love the strawberry/rhubarb and the peach pies. According to the lady owner, Julie, she puts less sugar in her fillings and that is why we think we love them. The taste of the fruit comes through. And pie is always the dessert du jour at our cottage.
“Cut my pie into four pieces, I don’t think I could eat eight.”
