Life of Pie: Heidis Pies for the Holidays
Wednesday, November 20th, 2013 @ 7:11 AM
Heidis Pies is a family–owned–and–operated 24–hour diner in San Mateo that’s been making pies from scratch by hand since 1970. Heidi’s bakes their pies using only the highest quality ingredients, including fresh fruits and absolutely no additives, fillers or artificial flavors. And about their crust—nothing but flakey deliciousness!
*Heidis Pies fun fact: The same baker has been creating amazing Heidi’s pies for more than 40 years!
During the holidays, Heidi’s homemade pies fly out the diner’s door at the rate of 4,000 per day (which explains why Heidi’s pies have been voted the best pies in the Bay Area). But no need to hit the highway for a Heidi pie; because Nugget Markets is currently the only retail establishment to carry these phenomenal pies! Take your pie pick from many varieties, including pumpkin, apple, and pecan (made with a thick layer of whole pecan halves on top). • KAELEY LATOW (Bakery)
