Though blackbirds and clown faces were once the most popular pie ingredient, they are now hard to find, since they are both extinct. Sink your teeth into rare combinations of classic ingredients with today's Groupon: for $14, you get any 9-inch pie from Ivy Bakery, a $28 value.
Ivy doles out an impressive and extensive catalog of 9-inch pies, made from scratch in small batches (click here for a printable menu). Fork into meringue madness with a frothy chocolate banana or coconut cream, or aim to please with apple. More adventurous eaters can send a creative mouth message with the green-hued avocado. Custards, nut pies, cobblers, and chocolate selections round out the extensive menu. All 9-inch pies on the menu are included with your Groupon, though some pies are seasonal.
Unlike individual-sized cupcakes and Twinkies built for one, pies encourage and foster social interaction without the pressure of a birthday or wedding cake. Ideal for holidays and late nights alike, the dessert is versatile, modest, and delicious, just like a humble jack-of-all-trades as seen through the eyes of a hungry gator. Call at least 48 hours in advance to order your pie for pickup at the Brooklyn bakery.
- The products are absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend this place for all your desert [sic] needs… – Dan, Google Maps
- I was not in the best of mood after a long car ride.... but the buttermilk pie makes up for everything! The buttermilk pie was best described from this friend as a fusion of the Hong Kong Style Egg Custard and Creme Brulee together. – jocy c., Yelp
- As soon as the door opens to the bakery, you are hit with smells of goodness. Spices, sugar, cocoa, and the like are over whelming and will make you hungry even if you were not a minute ago. – Don S. Yelp
