A pie placed strategically on a windowsill has the unique ability to entice children to come inside for dinner and to lure nefarious criminals into open jail cells. Sample this dual-purpose pastry with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two pies at Mama Jo Homestyle Pies in Amherst or Medina (up to a $30.50 value).
Mama Jo Homestyle Pies' talented confectioners fill flaky fresh-baked crusts with 30 different fruity and creamy fillings. Pastry chefs line each tray with a doughy crust that, like the earth’s molten core, is never frozen. An orchard of fillings spills from slices in fruit varieties including summery peach ($13.95 for 10") and citrusy pineapple ($12.95 for 10"). Apple ($13.95 for 10”) and cherry bites ($13.95 for 10”) come fresh without added sugar, and cream pies—which require refrigeration—inject crusts with pillowy folds of french silk ($14 for 10") or lemon meringue ($12 for 10").
