Like, OMG. As a huge fan of Seattle's High 5 Pie, Danny and myself were very excited to receive a preview pack of their new fall "flipside" hand pie offerings. Here's what we sampled:
First, the spiced plum walnut flipside, a sweet and spicy pie with a great texture and cozy, spicy flavor;
and of course the S'mores flipside ( below); while initially we were surprised to slice it in half and discover that the chocolate had mostly sunk to the bottom leaving a hollow pie shell on top, this was quickly turned into an advantage when we heated the halves and stuffed them with vanilla ice cream;
Though I generally don't go savory, I would be remiss if I didn't give a quick mention to their hearty potato/cheese/dill/veggie flipside, a comforting and homey potpie type of snack...
Though they weren't ready when we sampled them, there will also be caramel pecan and pumpkin pie options available.
Overall thoughts? Suffice it to say it's going to be a very good fall to become fat.
