I don't like to overpay for stuff, but for some reason I have a soft spot in my heart for Trois Pommes bakery. It is pricey but I simple love the place. Perhaps it's because they make so many peanut butter treats. Perhaps it's because they make old-school favorites, like the hand-made Oreos on the left of the pic, below.
Remember the Hostess cupcake? (You gotta be old like me, perhaps.) They make their own version, called the Mostess, with a deep chocolate cake. Ping-Ping ordered one by mistake, she meant to order something else. She was so disappointed when we got home and opened the bag that I offered to take if off her hands. She declined - she ain't no dum-dum.
I am a sucker for peanut bucker, so when they pointed out the peanut butter pie, I heard the Sting song "Be Still My Beating Heart" go off in my head. (I don't think anyone else heard it.) I was dinner-stuffed so after I photoed it, I told myself I'd save it for tomorrow. NOT. The filling was light, like a peanuty cloud. The bottom crust was made of something akin to crushed chocolate graham crackers. The top crust was a dark chocolate shell, it must have been applied when liquid to harden over time. At $5, let the debate begin on whether it is "overpriced."
