Fancy Pies in Washington Heights!

While walking home from grocery shopping yesterday afternoon, our attention was grabbed by local resident, June Frances Coleman, who was set up on 181st & Cabrini with her amazing homemade pies.

June's locally grown business, Fancy Pies by JBO Homes, was inspired by family recipes. Current offerings include:
Nana's Alabama Apple (a traditional apple pie)
Sour Cream Apple Walnut
Southern Bourbon Sweet Potato
Creamy Jamaican Rum Spice Pumpkin
June was offering samples of the pies. In a clever move, rather than cut up pieces of a whole pie, she's created a miniature pie cookie - a penny-sized portion of her signature crust, which is closer to a shortbread cookie (delish!) with a dollop of filling. Brilliant!! Personally, I think she's got another great product there: Pie Cookies. How amazing would that be?!

Last night I hosted a small dinner party and served the pumpkin pie. It was well received - a fun twist on a classic. Sadly, we ate it before I had a chance to snap a photo.

If you'd like to order a pie for Thanksgiving, you must get your order in by TODAY! You can reach June at 212-696-6799 or Tell her that Hudson Heights Gazette sent you!

  1. Thank you for the post Melissa! The response to the pies has been remarkably overwhelming. I was slammed with about 20 orders Sunday night. So there was much to do Tuesday night. I'm happy to report all orders were filled and I made a few extra which quickly got snagged by my neighbors that followed the smell of pie to my door. I'm working on a website and Facebook page at the moment, but for now you can follow Fancy Pie's on twitter @fancy_pies.
