If we have to stomach one more cloyingly sweet, overhyped cupcake, we might just lose it.
Quell the frosted rage with a visit to High 5 Pie, Dani Cone’s recently opened bakery brimming with golden, flaky crusts of all shapes and sizes (including vegan and gluten-free varieties).
We’re torn between the deep-dish apple cinnamon pies, spinach and feta flipsides (portable turnovers), and miniature cherry almond Petit-5s — all made with Cone’s grandmother’s all-butter crust recipe.
For those sticking to sweet, have your slice warmed up and topped with a la mode options like Molly Moon’s salted caramel or Blue Bird’s vanilla ice cream.
We’re melting already.
