Dangerously Delicious Pies

Ahh, the elusive Dangerously Delicious Pies. Dave, Heather, Sami and I had attempted to go here on July 5 only to (sadly) discovered they were closed that day. We tried again another time and Sami got stuck in VA. So, Dave and I decided to get dessert here after our dinner at Blue Agave.

This is another of those Baltimore places that's been on TV. Apparently the Food Network loves Baltimore. We gazed over the chalkboard menu and looked into the lit up glass case and finally decided on 3 kinds of pie: Baltimore Bomb, Chocolate Chess and Apple Crumb (which was a mini-pie).

We took our order to go, promising to come back and dine in for the Savory Pie experience (they make chicken pot pies, and some other delicious sounding pies that I can't wait to sink my face into).

Once at home Dave poured us a glass of milk, divvied up the pie slices and we dug in. The Baltimore Bomb was a custardy pie with chunks of Berger cookies baked into it. It gives you a little bit of that chocolately goodness that I love so much but isn't as overwhelming as some have described the Berger cookie to be (if you're unfamiliar, it's a shortbread cookie caked with a GOB of fudgey frosting that includes ingredients I don't want to mention and a calorie count that is simply sinful). The Chocolate Chess was something between an undercooked brownie, chocolate mousse and cake. It was fabulous. This one was by far my favorite. The crust was perfect, the filling gooey. It was good. The final one, the mini-pie of Apple Crumb had to be my least favorite of the three. It was a little on the bland side (I think it needed more cinnamon or apple spice or something) but the crumb topping was crunchy sweet and perfectly baked.

We'll be giving them a more complete review when we go back for their savory pies. So far they've got 3.5 noms.

The guy working the counter was super helpful and patient and offered great suggestions. It's clean and comfy on the inside and it's in a great location.
