Before lychee fizzes, deconstructed Black Forest cake, and miso ice-cream sandwiches, there was pie.
And now there’s First Prize Pies.
Fresh from the oven of Allison Kave (the Brooklyn Pie Bake-Off’s runaway winner), flaky-yet-dense buttery crusts cradle goodness like bourbon ginger pecan, s’more (graham cracker crust, milk chocolate ganache, bruleed marshmallow fluff), and apple cider cream.
Kave’s Mom, Rhonda, makes Roni-Sue’s Chocolates and her brother, Corwin, is executive chef at Fatty Crab — but innovations like an apple cheddar pie with shredded cheese in the crust and chocolate peanut butter pretzel pie are distinctly her own.
The fledgling business also takes custom orders and, to make things easy, delivers in NYC.
Which really takes the cake.
