'Tis the season to run around, find gifts, decorate, wrap. I think it's time for pie!
That means a visit to Sweetie-Licious Pie Pantry and Bakery in DeWitt! (And yes, they mail order!)
Linda Hundt, the Sweetie herself, is the winner of the National Pie Contest (as seen on Food Network), along with a number of other contests. Check out her delightful blog, too!
One bite of her tasty treats and its easy to see why!
But a visit to Sweetie-Licious is more than sweet treats, especially at the holidays.
So, enjoy a few of my favorite touches from one of the tastiest places in town.
It all begins with a welcome.
Then you enter -- and see the line! It moves quickly and besides, that gives you time to puruse all the options -- decadent cookies, large deep dish pies (Tom's Cherry Cherry Berry Pie is a hit!) and enchanting cupcakes -- I was fond of the coconut covered white cupcakes! The cabinet below this display is filled with treats!
Take a look left, right, up and down. You'll see a giant story book hanging from the ceiling...
...the "Pixie Pantry" atop Linda's signature pink boxes, all awaiting pick-up.
Here's a closer look!
A jolly Santa climbs down a vintage chimney.
Sweet vintage villages remind us of our childhoods...
...while a cute sign reminds us that special orders are available.
Holiday balls and greens are another reminder of the holiday.
Like we needed it. (The reminder, I mean. We always need pie.)
Feel like cooking? Grab an apron! The vintage textiles look perfect here!
And if you're looking for some reading material, you'll find a book or two to enchant you!
Settle in for a snack at one of the three tables -- or a salad or quiche.
Or, if you prefer, just take pictures! It's hard not to!
The fact is, Sweetie-Licious is just so darned sweet that you might not even need to have a snack to get that happy sweet feeling.
But you'll want to. Time to make pie?
Word on the street is "it's easy!"
(Thanks, Linda, for letting me shoot to my heart's content! And the Lemon Cherry Bomb cookie gave me the energy to do it!)
