Martha Stewart’s Pie Pop-Up Shop

This past weekend only, the homemaker of all homemakers, Ms. Martha Stewart, sold her pies and tarts in a tiny shop in the West Village.  At only $3 a pie, these cute mini pastries were selling out quickly.  After waiting in line, everyone was given a ticket, which allowed you to purchase one pie.
With a group of foodie girlfriends, including the lovely Sarah of Fritos and Foie Gras, we shared both sweet and savory tarts.  The Chewy Chess Tart, reminded me of a pecan pie, without the nuts.  The brown sugar and buttery deliciousness was the perfect late afternoon treat with a glass of iced coffee.  The Leek and Olive Tart with melted brie was both flaky and creamy.   This pop-up shop was open to celebrate the launch of the new book, “Martha Stewart’s New Pies and Tarts”.  I may not be domestic enough to bake these adorable pies myself, but I certainly enjoyed tasting them.  If only this shop was a permanent fixture downtown for weekend afternoon strolls for sweets, when you’ve had your fill of New York City cupcake bakeries.
What's your favorite Martha Stewart dessert? xo
