Specialty Pie and coffee shop: McKinney, Bishop Arts, Deep Ellum
Emporium Pies has some of the best pies in Dallas, and we are lucky enough to have a location right on the square in downtown McKinney. Emporium has a rotating seasonal menu of handmade pies that will tempt you to make #cheatday EVERY day!
This past weekend Emporium Pies celebrated their 5th birthday, and offered a variety of extra special treats! Among those treats was the Chicken Lickin Pot Pie, offered only once a year on their anniversary weekend. I was lucky enough to get a pre-order in for the Chicken Lickin Pie before they sold out, and boy was it delicious. Hands down the best pot pie I've ever had! Chicken Pot Pie can sometimes be a bland, mushy meal but this one had amazing flavor and a flaky crispy crust. I can't wait until September 2018 when I can order my next one!
If you missed the anniversary specials on September 1st, don't worry… you can still get a slice of their limited time S'Morgasbord pie through September 10th. It's inspired by a fall favorite - S'MORES - with a graham cracker crust, brownie pie, and toasted marshmallow meringue. I can't wait to get there and try a slice!
