While Southerners seem to hold a lot of honor when it comes to pie recipes and traditions, it doesn’t mean that the coast to coast adoration waivers in the slightest. Take the Pecan Pie at Two Little Red Hens, a traditional buttery filling topped with wonderfully toasted pecans, this pie’s perfection is tied effortlessly to its simplicity. For those who can’t quit the brown stuff, there’s a chocolate option which includes bittersweet chunks in the mix, but stick with the classic if you truly want to taste the rustic dynamic flavor duo of buttery nuttiness.

If the pie doesn’t do you in, Steve’s puns surely will. Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies is where you’ll find all the keys to a great pie. With lime as a key ingredient, you’d be surprised to know that the American Pie Council credits only two commercial bakeries in the US with using freshly squeezed key lime juice. Luckily, Steve’s is one of them. With a genuine and faithful resemblance to the first key lime pies ever made, these minimalist, handmade beauts are recognized as the best in the city. If you are a fan of the queen of green pies, then order a slice, sit back, and enjoy the taste of a tropical favorite.
