A celebration of selected spots with some of our finest baked goods!

Think of an All-American apple pie at a California fruit stand. Imagine a “pie shed” in Vermont that is open 24/7 so you can get a cherry pie in the wee hours. Consider a slice of sugar cream pie, the official state pie of Indiana. These are just some of the joys to be found in A Few Good Pie Places airing Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
