Mama Jo Pies

Hi friends. Today we are talking about pies. Not just any pie, but the handcrafted, made with love, Mama Jo Homestyle Pies  kind, made close by in Amherst, OH.

IMG_2502Over the weekend we had the opportunity to sample an Apple Pie (Mr. C’s pick) and a Coconut Cream Pie (a favorite of ours) and I can honestly say I haven’t stopped thinking about them since.

Both crusts were so light and flaky, seriously, to me the crust is what makes a pie great. The apple pies filling was rich without being too much, each bit a new chunk of fresh apples and cinnamon. The coconut pie was a tropical delight, each morsel filled with shredded fresh coconut pieces and rich cream.

These pies were an amazing addition to our first Father’s Day celebration. Even our little ninja may have had a taste of the crispy, sweet crust. He loved them!

Thanks Mama Jo Pies for the weekend treat. I was invited to experience the Mama Jo Homestyle Pies as part of their marketing efforts. Thanks for supporting the Ohio small business that allows me to create special content like this for iheartcleveland!
