Apple pie is an iconic American dish – there is even a national holiday for apple pie. It is a classic choice when it comes to dessert: enjoy it with ice cream, whipped cream, or caramel syrup. With an assortment of apples to pick from, here are our picks of the top spots in New York City to enjoy this sweet dish.

Pie Corps

Visit Pie Corps in Brooklyn, where the ingredients are locally sourced and the sweets are as sweet as ever. This quaint shop has quality product to back it up, and its signature pie at this Greenpoint bakery is its apple crumb with rosemary caramel slice, which goes well with the theme of mixing the sweet with the savory.

Pies ‘N’ Thighs

Pies ‘N’ Thighs is a soul food restaurant serving fried chicken and pie. Their classic apple pie made with Granny Smith apples spiced with cinnamon can be served with or without cheddar cheese.

Four and Twenty Blackbirds

The nationally-loved Four and Twenty Blackbirds pie shop usually makes traditional pies with a different twist. The menu changes with the seasons, and the salted caramel apple pie is the top-seller. It is made with fresh lemons and Angostura bitters.

Baked

This charming and quaint bake shop has a creative take on cookies, brownies, cakes, and other pasties including dessert and breakfast. Located in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, Baked offers delicious pie made with sizable portions of apple chunks, vanilla bean, cinnamon and just a splash of bourbon.

Bubby’s Tribeca

You’re in luck when you visit Bubby’s in Lower Manhattan – this weekend brunch spot uses local apples chosen from nearby farmers markets and seasons them with cinnamon, cloves, lemon zest and sea salt. This interpretation of the apple pie uses double crusting which results in perfectly structured crust after baking every single time.

Little Pie Company

The Little Pie Company puts a spin on the quintessential pie made from scratch and adds fresh sour cream and walnuts to the mix. The sour apple walnut cream pie is a best-seller at the shop and can be bought by the inch, with sliced granny smith apples enveloped by sour cream. The entire combination is topped with brown sugar, cinnamon and walnut streusel.

CATCH

The apple pie game has changed with the apple pie doughnut at CATCH, a restaurant known for celebrity sightings and its seafood menu. Additionally, this version of apple pie includes a variety of savory ingredients – cream cheese custard, praline ice cream, graham streusel, rum raisins and caramel syrup, making this dessert a great choice.

Two Little Red Hens

Two Little Red Hens, a bakery more known for its cakes, takes on the double crust apple pie which is made with a variety of different type of apples – the Granny Smith, Macintosh and Golden Delicious, to be exact. To make it even better, they bake apple crumb pie.

Butter and Scotch

Who doesn’t like a version of candy apple in their apple pie? This high-class pie at Butter and Scotch has an all-butter crust and looks almost too good to eat with the cinnamon candy shell drizzled on top, enclosing a mix of local apples and apple cider caramel. This pie is only available seasonally, so get yours before it’s gone.

Red Rooster Harlem

If you’re looking for some Southern home cooking, Red Rooster Harlem is the place to be. The best way to top off a good ole fried chicken dinner is with a slice of their warm apple pie that has cheddar cheese baked right into the crust, possibly reminding you of Thanksgiving dinner at your parents’ house.

Momofuku Milk Bar

This take on caramel apple pie at Momofuku Milk Bar uses thin slices of Granny Smith apples and layers them with apple compote and caramel onto a salty and sweet pretzel crust, and, to top it all off, a drizzle of white chocolate. This delicious dessert is available at the milk bar, which also includes a variety of cookies, cakes, truffles and more.
