We were just walking through Century City, minding our own business, when the scent hit us: a sweet-yet-citrusy lemon, with hints of raspberry and spice.
No, it wasn’t a fancy lady’s new perfume. It was a table full of pies from Sugar Pie Honey Buns, a local bakery whose latest creations are foodie-flavor mash-ups including bourbon chocolate mint and berry-apple-cherry lattice.
And don’t even get us started on the Dutch sour cream walnut apple pie with walnut streusel, which can only be described as a rich, crumbly experience that makes saving calories all week so worth it (ten-inch pies start at $30).
Even better than the taste (well, nothing’s better, so let’s say just as good) is the brand’s cute wooden pie box ($24): a reusable, sliding-lid transport that ensures your dessert shows up picture-perfect at any dinner party.
Good luck keeping your mitts off until others can enjoy it, so maybe consider buying two. Order online or purchase them at the Century City farmers' market on Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
