The name is a bit of a misnomer: in fact, two babes—childhood friends Anna Derivi-Castellanos and Lenore Estrada—are the master bakers behind this pie company. The pies are made by hand each day using all organic ingredients from local purveyors. The holidays bring on autumnal flavors like a corn-syrup-free bourbon pecan, a classic apple (with a crumbly, hand-woven lattice crust) and a decadent sour cream pumpkin. Plus, their key lime is as good as it comes. Check out their website for pie classes and a pie subscription service.
Here in San Francisco, we shake up our traditional desserts with homemade shaker lemon, chocolate bourbon pecan and green chile apple as well. These buttery, homemade versions—available by the whole pie, slice and even in milkshake form—are among the best pies in San Francisco for your after-dinner treats. The holidays are an obvious time for pie, but we crave pies from these 13 shops all year round.
