Top Bakeries In South Florida For Pie Day

Did you know that March 14 is Pi Day? This is a holiday we all want to celebrate! In fact, we took to the hottest bakeries in South Florida to find the top spots for pies on such a great occasion. To our shock, most bakeries did not have one pie on the menu! We found out exactly where you, the reader, go for pies and it all began to make sense. With March 14 being Pi Day, March 15 just has to be diet day!

Davie, FL 33328

Two Fat Cookies
245 NE 2nd Ave.
Delray Beach, FL 33444
(561) 265-5350
www.twofatcookies.comBelieve it or not, this is one of the few bakeries that isn't also a diner or chain restaurant that serves pie in South Florida. And, when we say they have pies, they sure have pies! These pies are so rich and creamy; you gain about five pounds just looking at them! If you don't know the difference between a tort and a tart, you will learn it at Two Fat Cookies. While not necessarily a pie, a tart is a dessert using a pie shell and filled with fruits or rich fillings, such as chocolate. They are topped with whipped cream, too. Unlike pie, they are a bit thin, which makes for a different experience than a traditional pie. The torte, like many pies, is filled with jams and butter creams. The crust, however, is more cakelike than a traditional pie. That said, Two Fat Cookies has tortes, tarts and traditional pies, in addition to their great selection of cookies, cakes, cupcakes, cookie cakes and cake pops!
Fireman Derek's Bake Shop

Miami, FL 33137

www.firemanderekspies.comLocated in the heart of Wynwood, Fireman Derek introduces guests to a variety of sweets, including multiple ways to eat your pie. Traditional pies such as cherry and apple are very popular here. And, while technically not a pie, Fireman Derek has a host of cheesecakes that will have you stretching the definition of "pie" for the day. Amazingly attractive, you will want to try everything on his menu -- even the crack pie, which looks very hideous but is dangerously delicious. Fireman Derek's Bake Shop is probably the only place one can experience fudge-dipped flan on a stick!
