I feel like a jerk showing you something you can’t have, but I’m also no good at keeping delicious things to myself. This pie was available for order at Good Girl Dinette in Highland Park for Labor Day… only. There were three flavors available: peach, apple and plum. I chose the O’Henry Peach.
If you’ve ever had a curry pot pie from Good Girl Dinette, then you know that owner Diep Tran is a crust-making maestro. This fruit pie crust was flaky and buttery with that perfect punch of sourdough. The ends were crispy while the lattice and bottom were tender, but not too delicate—it stood up to the peaches.
The filling was ideal. The slices were soft but firm enough that they didn’t mush together. They were cut thin, with the fuzzy peel intact, making for juicy, textured layers. There wasn’t a lot of hoopla either—the peach flavor was subtle and pure without heavy syrups to ruin the party.
Unfortunately, you can only get this pie on some holidays, but I’m hoping Tran will have mercy on us and serve ‘em up at Thanksgiving. I’ll write up the petition.
